Golden Hour At The Ringling Vol. I

It may be hard to imagine that a courtyard so utterly Italian, with its pink stucco glowing and marble columns glistening in the afternoon sun, could exist anywhere outside the riviera, but such a place does exist on the coast of Florida in Sarasota at The Ringling Museum of Art. Luckily, I now live within a 40 minute drive of The Ringling and knew that it would be the perfect place for a styled shoot featuring the Domenica Collection.
The Ringling Museum of Art, built in 1925, was the legacy of circus impresario John Ringling. He envisioned a place where the people of Florida could come to experience beauty and wonder. The museum itself is filled with masterpieces from the Medieval times to Modern (including a James Turrell Skyspace) and the courtyard features replicas of famous Italian Renaissance sculptures (including a Statue of David).
Photographer Jenn Hall Sweatte and Model/Photographer Emily Lyons-Wood joined me on a late afternoon to wander the grounds and capture images for the Domenica Collection.
