Deconstructing Art

Sometimes, when photographing artwork, especially large pieces, I feel compelled to “deconstruct” them in order to better convey the richness of the work.The fountain “Power of the Sea,” by Austrian sculptor Rudolf Weyr, at Michaelerplatz next to the Hofburg Palace in Vienna, is one of them.DetailFountain-Web-DSC_6310DetailTwoFountail-Web-DSC_6308 DetailThreeFountain-Web-DSC_6308FountainWhole-Web-DSC_6308_edited-1FountainContext-Web-DSC_6310
