CHASING L.A. - J. PAUL GETTY MUSEUM





The Getty has been called the modern 'Acropolis' and when you take the tram up the hillside and come upon this jutting, curvaceous, very white museum and its spectacular perch overlooking Santa Monica, Los Angeles and the Pacific Ocean, you understand the comparison.  

Built  by Pritzker prise-winning architect Richard Meier, the Getty comprises six buildings on 110 acres, and the beautiful museum houses European paintings, drawings, sculpture, illuminated manuscripts, European and American photographs, and decorative arts.  

I started taking photographs and realized that the wonderful  dichotomy of the stark exterior and opulent interior decorative arts wing would make a playful visual essay. So here goes:
