Whether you’re snowed in by the fire or outdoors stringing lights on a palm tree, the holiday season has a special air about it that drifts through homes from coast to coast. It’s a time set aside for family and friends to celebrate, reminisce, reflect, and give, with delicious meals and an abundance of desserts peppered in between. It doesn’t matter if you’re busting out Michael Buble albums the day after Thanksgiving or finding yourself in an itchy handknit sweater dreaming of spring, it’s a time of year unlike any other, and we all know it well. To welcome it, we’re decking the blog with some our favorite TurningArt pieces inspired by the spirit of the season. Enjoy!
Manhattan is home to some of the most iconic holiday events and displays in the world. Near the top of that list are the tree and rink at Rockefeller Center, which Raymond Haddad captures in his photo “Tiny Skaters”. As a resident New Yorker, many of Raymond’s photos celebrate the character and vivacity of the city through both its crowning landmarks and unsung moments of beauty, which he carefully arranges with eye-popping color and contrasts. As an added bonus, the illustrious Prometheus statue in the rink is an icon in itself, completed by the prolific American sculptor Paul Manship, it is known to be the most photographed statue in all of New York City.
