Join Justin Reznick for an in-depth discussion in this video Photographing the staircase in the museum, part of Architectural Photography in Chicago: A Fine Art Approach.
- We're here at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago…to photograph an incredible staircase.…Now, spiral staircases are a major passion of mine…and modern art and architecture merge together to create…something that I find to be very much inspired by nature,…something like the nautilus shell,…that idea of just that continuous swirl up in to the sky…and I just love it.…So this particular museum was designed by Josef Kleihues,…who is a Berlin architect, no longer with us,…but he built this in 1996.…
Now, being from Berlin, and being in to Germany,…you get a lot of those staircases.…In fact, I just recently got back from a trip to Germany…with some interiors and some staircases…that I can share with you.…So coming here to Chicago to do this is really exciting,…to be in my own country here in the States.…This museum is going to open up,…and we're going to go and be the first ones in here.…It's very important when you go to a museum…try and get in there early to fight the crowds.…Now, I want to tell you a little bit about the gear.…
