In memory of P.J.S. on her fifty-fourth birthday.

From the perspective of emerging out of the glass elevator that connects the fifteenth floor of the Lamar Building with the penthouse that rests three storeys above it.

The structure, made of marble and glass, was designed by architect I.M. Pei in 1975—a commission from Senator R. Eugene Holley. Until the Senator’s arrest and subsequent imprisonment on charges of bank fraud, the penthouse served as his office in the sky.

The space is currently a studio for the painter Randy Lambeth, to whom I owe a debt of gratitude for permission to invade and shoot.

Color shots of the interior are first here and then there.
