TWA Terminal #31 B&W
Eero Saarinen’s masterpiece, the TWA Flight Center at JFK airport. This building was a mid century jewel, a beautiful yet functional building that served as a terminal until 2001. I stayed at the hotel for two days during the early stages of the pandemic as I was waiting for my flight back to Los Angeles. It was deserted, it was wonderful to see such beauty undisturbed by masses of people and noise. The shapes, the mid-century style, its all there. The evening and night brought soft light, the interior curves were strong, the small recesses were dark, the TWA signs in their bright red contrasting to the grey concrete. In the morning I knew sunrise would be stunning so I was up before dawn and shot for about 3 hours. The curves, the long shadows from the Eero Saarinen designed chairs and tables, the hand rails down the main stairs.
