Brancusi in New York City - "AWAKENINGS"

Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1211188.jpg

Please scroll from the thumbs at left or view at

mariucabphoto.wordpress.com

Brancusi's well known sculptures are known by us mainly from reproductions of photos taken in perfect circumstances of light and background by very skilled photographers.
When visiting this temporary exhibit I realized that what I was seeing in that gallery was totally unique and unable to be reproduced in other places. The sculptures seem to have been awaken from a deep sleep; they reflected the ceiling, the lighting fixtures, myself, each other in an inimitable way. They reacted to the environment in a way that Brancusi himself would not have guessed.
I was struck, again, by "the object staring back".

David, I added my notes after posting these images. There is no editing. Here and there I straightened the image or did some simple processing, darkening and some sharpening. I simply walked aroung the sculptures and looked at them from different angles. I found that they stared at me also.
Thank you for looking
