Atlanta at the High

I went to the High Museum today to see the Iris Van Herpen exhibit, but there were also a lot of interesting people and outfits.

The dressses by Iris Van Herpen are really more like sculptures than wearable fashion.  She says in the video that she is inspired by nature, but the materials tell her what to make.  She is attracted to materials that she doesn't know how to work with.

The exhibit is well worth seeing.

In the rest of the museum, the contemporary art and photographs are my favorites - 

Painting by Gerhard Richter

Beth Lilly's photograph is haunting, and I love how she hand writes descriptions of her scenes -

And as we were leaving, a girl walked right into my tree photograph.  Lovely.
