Photography by Chris Mottalini for an article in the Italian architecture and design magazine Abitare about Detroit-based designer Jonathan Muecke. The picture is shot inside of a house by Finnish architect Eliel Saarinen at Cranbrook, Michigan in the United States. The picture reminds me of Descent into Limbo by artist Anish Kapoor.

A lot of work by Mottalini involves architecture. He also photographed houses by the modernist architect Paul Rudolph and published a small publication last year called The Mistake by the Lake about bus shelters across greater-Buffalo built by parents to protect their children from the winter cold.
