This is a shot of “the Weight of One Self” a “philosophical experience” by Nordic sculptors Michael Elmgreen & Ingar Dragse in Lyon. This is a statue of a man carrying another lifeless man in his arms… himself in fact. I turned around the statue in order to hide the sun and get some dramatic backlighting and flickering on the surface of the Saone river. December 2014

Models from the Lyon miniature museum

The model and special effects museum in Lyon is a must see. I’m not too keen on the visual quality of special effects though and didn’t take any pictures (but I recommend you visit that part of the museum thoroughly, it’s very impressive: you can even see a robotised alien from the Ridley Scott film). The models are absolutely stunning. At first I believed they were using them for films but in fact they are mostly done for pleasure by passionate artists like Dan Ohlmann who is also the founder of the museum. Here are some of my shots of those models.

Deconstructivism is a Postmodernist movement derived from Philosopher Jacques Derrida’s theory. After Frank Gehry’s Paris Fondation Louis Vuitton museum, here is HimmelB(l)au’s Confluence Museum in Lyon (a pun in German: HeavenBuilt/HeavenBlue).
