"Master Architect Irving Gill (1870-1936) is considered a pioneer of the early modern movement in architecture, and there are numerous examples of his work still remaining in San Diego.  A number of these important buildings are in La Jolla, including the La Jolla Woman’s Club, La Jolla Recreation Center, and at The Bishop’s School and Scripps Institution of Oceanography.  The photographers for this project, Philipp Scholz Rittermann, Suda House, and John Durant, were commissioned by the Society to take Gill’s philosophical idea and produce a body of new works each of which includes all or part of a Gill building.  They were asked to be creative in their interpretation, to diverge from standard building portraits, and to translate a historical idea into a modern perspective.  The resulting exhibition presents an adventure into the legacy of Gill and this unique aspect of his philosophy, and the three artist’s present interpretations that are uniquely suited to the media of contemporary photography."
