Conversations in achromatic tones - 5
Today I am going to cheat. And why not? It’s been a wonderfully sunny day, and I feel that everything’s permitted! ;-)
So, my today’s post is not that achromatic after all.. Not only it has color in it, but I decided to call the photograph what it seems: The Blues.
It was in 2004 when it was clear that Amherst Cinema theater was going to undergo a major renovation that our office, Kuhn Riddle Architects (where I was working at the time) who were soon to take on the job of the renovations and expansion visited the dilapidated and indeed sad looking building. I came across this ‘scene’ in the lobby. Charley Chaplin just seemed so present - and lost - pondering the mundane intricacies of installing the Instant Shelter… The shelter took some years to complete. But now it is home to many wonderful events, projects and a place you can always rely on to show the best that independent cinematography has to offer. I think, Charley Chaplin would look happier now, in his new not-so-instant shelter, the Amherst Cinema Center
