James Welling (b. 1951, Hartford, CT; resides in New York, NY) studied at Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh and received his BFA and MFA from Cal Arts in Valencia, California. Recently retired from his tenured faculty position at UCLA, Welling has been exhibited internationally, and was the inaugural guest for the Monsen Lecture in Photography initiated at the Henry Art Gallery, Seattle.
This photograph and the hardcover book accompanying it came out of a challenge by New York magazine art director Jody Quon to photograph Philip Johnson’s Glass House in a new and dynamic way; Welling exceeded her expectations in his interpretation of color within the iconic architectural work. Three of Welling’s other books are currently on view in the PCNW exhibition By The Book, designed by Lorraine Wild.
