Guggenheim Museum facade in Black & White

The Guggenheim Museum's architecture, both inside and outside, is unique and a fascinating structure to photograph.

The succession of curved lines and rounded walls emphasize the contrast and the swirling forms, making it an almost perfect Black & White subject.

The Guggenheim is located in the heart of Upper East Side and houses highly renowned artists' work, including Impressionist, Post-Impressionist, Modern and Contemporary art. It pairs up quite strikingly with the building's architecture since Frank Lloyd Wright's design is a real departure from anything else in Manhattan and stands out as a piece of art in itself.
