JAMES SIMON GALLERY
Location: Berlin, Germany
Designed by: David Chipperfield
The James Simon Gallery is a visitor center and art gallery located on Museum Island in Berlin, Germany. Gallery is designed by architect David Chipperfield.
Being an architectural photographer there was no way I could pass by this stunning building. It's not without reason that if you google "What architecture to see in Berlin", the Gallery is in the top 10 places.
Architectural photography of public spaces, galleries and museums is complicated by the fact that they are always crowded and you as an architectural photographer need to spend a lot of time to catch the right moment.
During the architectural shoot of The James Simon Gallery, I got lucky. It rained an hour before sunset and there were very few people outside. This allowed me to shoot the gallery without the crowds of tourists.
