April 2013: Photos from the Met

Contrary to popular thought, I haven't been inspired to make much art in the past few months while working at the Met. At first, I felt the need to record, sketch and document everything, but now I am content to just BE with the art. Perhaps the Met's encyclopedic collection is working on me subconsciously...or perhaps I just need a vacation. Here are some photos from the past few months. Many are edited with Instagram and some are taken behind the scenes, before opening or after we shut the doors to the public. Enjoy.
