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.
