I went to the Met on a whim the other day. You know, getting a dose of culture when I can- especially because I live in NYC and I try and take advantage of all the cultural centers around me. During my visit, I came across German photographer Thomas Struth's exhibit and was so glad I did. I've never heard of him before, but feel in love with his work, most of all his Museum Photograph series. I love the idea of looking at art in a museum, of people looking at art in a museum (or historic site).
If you are in the NYC area I really recommend checking this exhibit out. While you're at it, don't forget the Matisse exhibit at MOMA!
