Designed by Lorraine Wild and Victor Hu: Green Dragon Office. "From 2006 to 2009, James Welling photographed the Glass House, the landmark architectural estate that Philip Johnson built in New Canaan, Connecticut in 1949. Welling's photos offer a decided departure from the familiar views of the house and grounds. Using digital cameras set on a tripod and holding a variety of filters in front of the lens, he created tinted veils and distortions that transformed the image at the moment of exposure, endowing it with powerful swells of glowing color. As Welling described it, the use of filters enabled his project to become "a laboratory for ideas about transparency, reflectivity and color". This lovely hardbound monograph also includes an essay by Noam M. Elcott as well as a transcribed interview between the photographer and noted architectural historian Sylvia Lavin about the project. A most handsome example of the 2010 Damiani first edition additionally SIGNED "James Welling" in black ink on the rear colophon.. Near Fine/No Jacket - As Issued.
