Getting intimate with the classics

19 Mar

These are among the most beautiful examples of architectural photography I have ever seen. The photographer took full advantage of the movement, light, and natural construction materials used in the design.

When I fist saw the top image I was blown away by the design of the room, the beautiful skylights, and the afternoon sun streaming in.

Then I realized I was inside a violin. As a classically trained violinist I probably should have been quicker on the uptake.

These shots are part of a larger campaign for the Berlin Philharmonic, with the tagline “closer to the classical.” “Closer” is an understatement: we are looking at the inside of some of the most recognizable (from the outside) classical musical instruments.

Did you know what you were looking at right away?

    I recognized them, but had to wrap my mind around how it was done. In genius.

    Can I simply just say what a relief to find someone who really understands what they’re talking about on the web. You actually understand how to bring an issue to light and make it important. A lot more people really need to read this and understand this side of the story. I can’t believe you are not more popular because you certainly have the gift.

    I was told this webpage would make it all better. It did not. I am registering a complaint. I’m not entirely sure who you are or what you do. It could be amazing, but it wasn’t what I wanted when I googled “what will make it all better”.

    I’m sorry that you were led here under the pretence that we could, in fact, make it all better. I hope you find exactly what you need.
