Photographer's Note

The San Francisco Asian Art Museum moved from its previous location in Golden Gate Park to the old San Francisco Library Building in March 2003. The original library's 1916 beau-art style building was renovated and redesigned by the Italian architect Gae Aulenti. Her innovative design incorporates a blending of old and new, including a creative use of glass ceilings over the previously open light-well corridors, and an externally located glass escalator attached to the North side of the building. The museum is one of the largest in the Western world showing only Asian Art. The floors are generally arranged to follow the route of the spread of Buddhism through Aisa. Presently, there is a fine exhibition from Tibet which runs through mid-September.

This shot was taken about a year ago when the ‘Hearts in SF’ exhibit was still being shown. I originally wanted to photograph just the heart, but liked the mood added by the banner for the ‘Geisha – Behind the Mask’ exhibition.

Technical / post production: Auto Contrast, Auto levels, sharpened. Increased saturation +3, added borders, resized for TE specifications.
