Andrea Stone was originally trained as a landscape photographer. However, in 2011, she experienced an “epiphany of sight” in Portland, Oregon, which led her to start photographing city scenes in the reflections of skyscrapers. Her City Reflections Project then gave rise to Elements, a series focused on extraordinary graphic features of modern buildings. She transforms modernist structures into glowing, beckoning organisms, each one pulsating with light and color. Her study of reflections invites us to consider how buildings converse with each other and how they see us, rather than how we see them. She looks past the rigidity and solitude of everyday architectural forms to discover their fluid, intimate, and playful geometries.
Stone’s architectural photography has taken her to twenty cities in North America and Europe. Her work has been published and sold throughout North America, Europe, and Asia, and can be found in private and corporate collections, including the Crocker Art Museum. In her presentation, Stone will talk about the origins of her inspiration, the creative process, and the evolution of this on-going work.
This lecture takes place during Photography Month Sacramento.
