Jamilah and Genevieve. That Great Shot, 2012

Like our fellow TAG members, we spent the last meeting of the summer taking photographs of things that inspired us in the Museum. We found ourselves fascinated by how people reacted to works of art in the galleries—looking closer, taking photographs, and talking to each other about how they felt about the art.

Our featured photograph for this post is of a man taking a picture of Evening in The Charles Engelhard Court. The photographer appears in awe of the sculpture, and we understand why: the gallery's open space and natural light places the sculpture on a whole other level. We love the contrast between the bronze and white marble sculptures, and we really like the photographer's pose.

The Met inspired this photograph by providing spaces that allow for creativity and expression. We had a fantastic time roaming around the Met in search of people's different reactions to the art.
