Last fall, I sent a proposal to my editor at Missouri Life for an idea on a famous home. I receive a contract for a feature story with photos for the Frank Lloyd Wright Home in Ebsworth Park. A fan of Wright’s for many years, I was ecstatic to receive the assignment.
After contacting Joanne, the home’s board chairman, we set up a time for a tour. Although I’d visited the iconic structure before with hubby and family, the second time around left me with a new found appreciation for Wright’s concepts and architecture.
Over the course of my assignment, my love affair with Frank Lloyd Wright deepened. His Japanese-inspired influence, use of geometric shapes and natural materials made him all the more appealing to me.
Joanne mentioned I was only the third photographer allowed to capture the home’s interior, and the first photographer to have a published photo of the Cherokee Red gate at the entrance of the home. I’m the first writer/photographer to do a story on the home fact-checked by the board chairman.
Joanne sent me a very nice email on February 8, 2013.
Hope you enjoy the article. It’s one of my proudest achievements.
With the exception of one photo, I used ambient light to capture the home’s essence.
