Landmark Theatre

Post date: Mar 22, 2015 2:49:17 PM

On Saturday, March 21st, I led one of my photography Teaching Tours at the historic Landmark Theatre in Syracuse, NY. The interior architecture is stunning and we were quite overwhelmed with the sheer number of photographic opportunities! The architect, Thomas Lamb, described the design as "European, Byzantine, Romanesque – which is the Orient as it came to us through the merchants of Venice."

My students and I were simply delighted with the evening! Enjoy a few of my shots...

My favorite shot of the night.

An ornate wall sconce.

A chandelier in the main lobby.

One of the many Buddhist statues and symbols found throughout the interior.

Even the drinking fountains received an ornate treatment.

An ornate tile backdrop to one of the old fountains in the upstairs lobby.

A small part of the restored wall mural in the main lobby.

The cheap seats.

The floor seats.

Exit 5 from the balcony. The relief work on the walls was mesmerizing!

I can't wait to go back and shoot again. :-)
