Today we swung by the Norton Simon Museum in Pasadena to look at a few exhibits. The weather was pretty nice and we sat out in the garden for a little while between exhibit hopping. I also bought a Sunprint kit in the gift shop and am quite excited to take it for a spin. One of my favorite things to do in museums is to watch people experiencing the art. I'd been to the Norton Simon several times so I was already familiar with their permanent collection which meant I could spend more time people watching! There's something so quiet, reflective, and personal about photographing people while they're studying a painting (or just relaxing in front of one). Rather than disturb them I like to photograph them with their backs to me. It's interesting to see how posture and body language change depending on the piece of art. The way a person holds themselves in these moments tells me a lot about them and I'm fine to leave the rest a mystery. Stay tuned for a second post from the Norton Simon. I'll be showing some images of the shadows cast by Hindu statues!
I'm Maureen Price. I'm a Los Angeles based photographer and voice actor. This tiny corner of the internet is my space for sharing recent work and reaching out to friends old and new. If you scroll through my images you'll see that I love museum visits, travels of all sorts, quiet moments, black and white, curious people, and unnoticed beauty. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy my visual journal! Oh yeah, if you want to see more of me just check out the links below.
