I love how the arts district downtown is growing which allows me to discover new places. My most recent discovery is the Art Square thanks to my dear friend Walter Jacques Taieb. His "Portraits Through Books" is one of a kind and original. I especially loved the concept of how he names each of his pieces after the name of the people that own the books. People can look at the books on the shelf in each portrait and view insight into the personality of the owner. That idea alone is fascinating to me!
The colors of this particular portrait is what drew me in. It so happens to be Kerry Simon's cookbooks! It's impossible to appreciate the details unless one views these portraits in person. When standing in this gallery it appears as if the books are right there in front of you waiting to be grabbed!
Walter may be expanding his creativity to fine-art photography, but I will always see him as one of the most respectable musicians I have ever met! Not only did he attend Juilliard (where I wanted to go), he is a composer where his symphonic compositions were released by Sony Classical and RCA Red Seal. We actually collaborated on a dance song together a couple years back entitled "I Need You Baby" and you can listen to it here at http://www.Reverbnation.com/angelajadyn
These pics were taken at night and I wanted to keep the look of everything in it's raw natural form. I understand that it's a little dark but I figured it looked cool.
