About this title

Synopsis:

Going beyond documenting their work, author Marvin Rand captures the emotion and art of the buildings created by the legendary California brothers and architects, Charles and Henry Greene, in Greene & Greene. Rand's images focus on details-architectural elements, lighting, and materials-which create the illusion that one could reach out and touch them, feeling the sensuousness of line and texture in each design.
The art of the Greenes is interpreted by Rand in 150 choice photographs, documenting the culmination of the Craftsman period and highlighting the art of workmanship by the architects.
Rand has tried to extend architecture as a form of art, exploring the quality of emotion expressed in light and shadow, using what is evident in architectural design. He has been published in numerous books and magazines throughout the world and has been showcased in major exhibitions. Rand lives in Marina del Rey, California.
Daniel Gregory graduated from Yale in 1973, and after earning a Ph. D. in Architecture from the University of California-Berkeley, he taught architectural history at Carnegie-Mellon University in Pittsburgh. Now Sunset magazine's home editor, he has served on national juries for the American Institute of Architects.

From the Inside Flap:

Greene & Greene By Marvin Rand With an introduction by Daniel Gregory In this collection of unequalled photography, renowned architectural photographer Marvin Rand reveals a whole new interpretation of the legendary California brother architects Charles and Henry Greene. Rand has documented the architectural work of the Greenes since 1959, when he accepted a request from the Metropolitan Museum of Art to photograph their sconces and lighting. He has been enamored with the Greenes ever since, building a body of work that is unsurpassed. Going beyond documenting the Greenes' work, Rand captures the emotion and art of their buildings. His images focus on details-architectural elements, lighting, materials-creating the illusion that one could reach out and touch them, feeling the sensuousness of line and texture they possess. The art of the Greenes is interpreted by Rand in 150 choice photographs recording the culmination of the Craftsman period and highlighting the art and workmanship of the architects. Marvin Rand, Hon. AIA, His photography has been published in more than forty books and magazines, has been exhibited in California and Washington, D.C.
