Seeing this on the web, I think I may have overdone the clarity and structure.
Saw the Mapplethorpe exhibit while at the Guggenheim, which of course inspired me to shoot square portraits in black and white.
The Guggenheim is such a designed space that one can hardly look in any direction without seeing an abstract composition. I never fail to take such pictures at each visit.
It was freezing in the apartment for some reason so I’d switched first to a sweater and then to a hoodie. Seeing myself in the mirror, I thought there’s one crazy, old, angry guy.
This seems an ironic architectural juxtaposition to me…
Wasn’t sure color added anything here so converted to B&W; then couldn’t be sure that was right, either.
