Wright in Ohio is the result of a collaboration between the Ohio History Connection and the Westcott House in honor of the 150th anniversary of Frank Lloyd Wright’s birth. This beautiful art book features eleven structures designed by Wright for Ohioans over the span of forty years and interpreted by the photographer Thomas R. Schiff in a new and surprising way – through the lens of panoramic camera. As Eric Lloyd Wright, an architect and Frank Lloyd Wright’s grandson, said, “Tom Schiff’s panoramic photographs not only pick the three-dimensional rhythm of Frank Lloyd Wright’s architecture with more space and movement than is conveyed in traditional representational photography, but they also add what Frank Lloyd Wright called the fourth dimension—depth.”
From the 1906 Burton and Orpha Westcott House to the 1956 Dr. Kenneth Meyers Clinic, this beautiful book captivates with the images of Wright’s spaces that amaze and delight anyone who is lucky to experience them.
Our gratitude goes to Tom Schiff—for his photography and his steadfast support of architecture, history and the arts—as well as to the Wright site owners in Ohio—for sharing their stories and their iconic homes and offices with us. You all helped to make this project possible.
All the sale proceeds go directly toward preservation efforts of the Westcott House, Wright’s Prairie Style gem in Springfield, Ohio.
