In 2006, I was assigned by Lifescapes magazine to photograph at the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Hollyhock House in Barnsdall Art Park, Los Angeles, California.
I was confronted with time and access limitations. I had to work around plastic sheeting protecting open areas from the elements. With the assistance of Advertising Director William Bush, now Publisher of Artweek.LA, I was able to make six photographs in and around the location’s living room that show the architect’s intent for the interior design of this area of the house.
With the recent reopening of the newly restored home, and with its nomination as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, interest in Hollyhock House has been renewed. I hope that you will find these pre-restoration photographs an informative addition to the visual documentation of Wright’s design. To see all six photos, click here or on the photographs below.
