WHITE ON WHITE


Last Thursday evening, my husband, Bill, and I took the commuter rail up to Boston to attend the opening reception at the Boston Society of Architects (BSA) for the exhibit White on White.

White on White is at The BSA Space, 290 Congress Street, Boston, through January 31, 2016.

Steve Rosenthal, the architectural photographer whose work is on display, is an old friend of KR+H's and ours. It was so great to see him and his wife, Kit...it has been awhile!

Opening reception for White on White at the BSA.

Steve magically captures light. The stillness and simplicity of these rural New England churches is inspiring and wonderfully captivating. 

The sun never knew how great it was until it struck the side of a building.
— Louis I. Kahn

Steve Rosenthal, architectural photographer

Collectively, [these buildings] are as important to the cultural and architectural history of these villages as are the great cathedrals of the cities of Europe. [...]These photographs celebrate New England church architecture, with its sense of rightness of proportion, quality of craftsmanship, and commanding siting.
— Steve Rosenthal

The exhibit is beautifully organized by Historic New England.

The book White on White is being sold at the BSA in conjunction with the exhibit (and discounted for BSA members). It is also available through Historic New England's online bookstore. To find out more about the making of this book, visit Steve Rosenthal's website, White on White.

White on White is on display through January 31, 2016 at the BSA Space, 290 Congress Street, Suite 200, Boston.
