Preservation Through Photography
Presented by Photographer Chris Mottalini
5:30 - 8 pm
Ringling College of Art + Design, Academic Center Auditorium
New York-based photographer Chris Mottalini visited his first Paul Rudolph house on a commission from the Rudolph Foundation, and says of that initial visit, that he developed a “slight obsession with Rudolph and his work” that lead him to document over thirty Rudolph buildings in the coming years.
Mottalini will present the remarkable and moving photographs from his book "After You Left, They Took It Apart (Demolished Paul Rudolph Homes)" of three homes by celebrated Sarasota School architect Paul Rudolph, taken just days before each of these historically significant structures was demolished.
"[The photographs] are a welcome form of remembrance for an architect – and an architectural genre – that doesn't always get the respect it deserves." – From the forward by Allison Arieff
Chris Mottalini will sign his book during the meet-and-greet reception. Book proceeds to benefit the SAF - Paul Rudolph Scholarship Fund.
