Browsing www.art.net

Photographing art is a challenge, as usually the lighting conditions inside a museum are not optimal, it does not make sense to just depict 2D art like paintings, and it is difficult to capture 3D installations that are meant to seen from several sides. That said, I am pleased with the way this one turned out, shadowplay and all. It is an art installation in the basement of the Museum of Modern Art of the City of Paris. And more people are pleased with the outcome: my 42nd shot in Explore.
