The Photographer’s Impressionistic View of Philip Johnson’s Architectural Wonder

From 2006 to 2009, LA-based photographer James Welling made several trips to Philip Johnson’s Connecticut retreat, to capture the modern marvel in all aspects and seasons.

A brilliant commercial film for Jim Beam created by StrawberryFrog (directed by Dante Ariola), which features my favorite actor. A short interview of Willem Dafoe and shooting scenes can be seen at AskMen.

Leaving the paint peeled off the walls, but finishing it off with special resin to keep it intact, keeping the engravings, the scores and scratches are all elements of this rather casually untouched interior design approach. The tone was set by the existing interior shell of the former garage, the poured concrete walls and ceiling.
