——-

Pre-Production:

Coverage of the press conference as well as Mrs. Bush’s visit was a part of the pre-production planning and discussions to ensure the project went fine.

Assignment:

Producing images that juxtaposed the artwork and the speakers was a challenge, and then we were not allowed to use flash when near the artwork, so we were stuck with just available light.

When Mrs. Bush visited the next day, she was given a gift while in the receiving line,, before giving the tour.

Post-Production:

We needed to deliver several images from each day to the client for distribution both in the US as well as Italy to promote the exhibit’s opening.

Final Analysis:

It was remarkable to see the attention paid to such a small piece of paper, until you actually saw the research behind it, and realized just what a marvel it actually was – especially so for it’s time.Assignment Construct
