MILAN ITALY – We spend a good part of the day today at a brand new museum here, the Fondazione Prada. The architecture is marvelous – I couldn’t begin to edit the images down to one. Like the new Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris, it’s currently light on collection. Fondazione Prada solved this problem in part by putting up an exhibition of important Greek sculpture (and Roman copies) borrowed from all over Europe. We preferred the organic architecture here, which feels a bit like a Roman forum, to the grander, Frank Gehry, realization in Paris.

Day 2082 of one photograph every day for the best of my life.

MILAN ITALY – We’re staying here with friends who own the Villa Rustici – a penthouse of a 1933 bauhaus-style monument. From an architectural guide to Milan:

In 1935, Giuseppe Terragni and Pietro Lingeri realize a building, Casa Rustici, which certainly represented a significant leap forward in terms of architectural solutions, but not only. Two buildings rise in parallel, united by catwalk balconies that create a virtual facade. We must not forget that we are talking about a building that is 75 years old . . . At the top level it is a space that is noted for its size – it covers the footprint of both buildings – and for the refinement of its details; it is often often called “villa”.

Day 2081 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.

VILLEDIEU FRANCE – Sometimes when I find myself in paradise I have trouble creating images. I need some tension in the air to function photographically. But being just a bit north of Provence doesn’t seem to be a problem, probably because there is just a lot going on.
