Gil Garcetti

Gil's lifelong love for photography began with his first camera, a gift on his thirteenth birthday from his father, who was a barber in South Los Angeles. Through his photographs, Gil discovered he could share his unique vision of the world, finding beauty in the overlooked, as well as the grand. In addition to his photography, Gil became chairman of the California Science Center Foundation in 2019. He is a producer of the hit CBS series, ALL RISE, having been a producer of the TV series THE CLOSER and MAJOR CRIMES. Gil is a frequent speaker on subjects he photographs and on social change; he is a leader in the effort to eliminate the death penalty in California. He was a teaching Fellow at the Harvard University Kennedy School and President of the LA City Ethics Commission.

Description

WALT DISNEY CONCERT HALL | THE PHOTOGRAPHS OF GIL GARCETTI

In this limited collector edition of 1,500 copies, Gil Garcetti’s brilliant interpretive photographs of the steel skin of the Walt Disney Concert Hall evoke the mystery, fluidity, texture and form of Frank O. Gehry’s lyrical shapes. Garcetti observes, “The way the light hits the building makes it feel as if it is exploding. I found that the way the light looked could change literally in seconds.”

A natural sequel to his book of construction photographs, “Frozen Music” takes the genre into the realm of high-concept art photography. The work has garnered positive reviews from Pulitzer Prize winning photographer David Kennerly and architectural photographer Julius Shulman.

Meticulously reproduced in black and white duo-tones debossed on luxurious paper, the photographs in the book are removable for framing.

The photographs in this book were the subject of an exhibit at the National Building Museum, Washington D.C. in 2004.
