Went to the Tate Modern yesterday to see The “Radical Eye” (Elton John’s early C20 collection of modernist photos) and Rauschenberg exhibitions. Liked the photos – Man Ray the highlight. Rauschenberg a mixed bag – liked the collages; the rest didn’t do much for me. But interesting. All art is interesting, if only to imagine what the artist is trying to achieve.
It was a chance to take a look around the new building, Switch House, including the viewing gallery on the 10th floor. That is pretty stunning, even on a grey day like yesterday. In fact, the grey light brings a softness and beauty to the city landscape, I find.
Took a few photos and played around with a few in black and white. (Inspired by Elton’s collection? Maybe.) See what you think.
