A Camera Club Trip – Picture Post

Last week a few of us in the Camera Club visited the Art and Culture Center in Hollywood to view a photography exhibit and to take photos of the works of a noted artist who works with Lego bricks.

The photographer, H. Allen Benowitz, has had photos featured in National Geographic Magazine.  His exhibit, entitled “Peoples of the World”, was impressive, but I was more impressed with the Lego art.  🙂

The artist, Nathan Sawaya, was a lawyer who spent all his leisure time creating artistic sculptures with Lego bricks, eventually leaving his profession to become a full-time artist.  His works have been displayed on major network and cable programs, and exhibited throughout the world.  Here are a few photos I took of just a few of the Lego works.

This is Mr. Sawaya’s sculpture of himself.  It is a remarkable likeness.

I love to take candid shots of people.  People are much more interesting to me than objects.  I don’t like posed photos.
