Holly Garner, founder of @IGDC, stands on the sea floor of the new immersive installation at The National Building Museum, ICEBERGS designed by James Corner Field Operations. The light in this portrait by Jarrett Hendrix is gorgeous—hitting her face in the most elegant way.
The maze at the National Building Museum shows up often in our Flickr pool, but this black and white photo from Caroline Angelo stands out. The man in the image is visually overwhelmed by the giant, white structure around him, and the tight framing of the image prevents us from seeing beyond the maze. You could say that we are a-mazed.
