Some Photographs Taken On The Grounds Of Cranbrook

Cranbrook Educational Community located in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan is a leading center of education, science, and art. It is comprised of a graduate Academy of Art, contemporary Art Museum, House & Gardens, Institute of Science, and Pre-K through 12 independent college preparatory schools. http://www.cranbrook.edu/

Founded by Detroit philanthropists George and Ellen Booth in 1904 and named after his family's English village in Kent County, Cranbrook’s campus features the work of world-renowned architects such as Eliel Saarinen, Albert Kahn, Steven Holl, Tod Williams, Billie Tsien, and Rafael Moneo; and sculptors Carl Milles, Marshall Fredericks, and others. Wolf Von Eckhardt, former architecture critic for the Washington Post, once called Cranbrook "the most enchanted and enchanting setting in America", and Paul Goldberger, formerly the architecture critic of the New York Times, called Cranbrook "one of the greatest campuses ever created anywhere in the world." In 1989 Cranbrook was designated a National Historic Landmark.

There are numerous opportunities for photography at Cranbrook, and Cranbrook's official policy is that amateur photographers are welcome to enjoy the grounds for photography. I hope that this gallery will encourage you to come and photograph this beautiful campus. Please click on an image to see it in full screen size and set to original.
