Photographer Jill Paider and Gehry's Biomuseo
The Los Angeles-based photographer shot these images this past Tuesday in what she says felt like 200% humidity. Says Paider, "It is a very highly anticipated opening—the locals are extremely proud to have not only a new museum, but a structure built by starchitect, Frank Gehry (they've had it on the CitySightseeing tour since construction began). I walked onto the site and was immediately greeted by the foreman. I told him that I'm Frank Gehry's neighbor in Santa Monica (actually true) and that I wanted to take a few pictures close up. They gave me access up to the immediate perimeter of the building. As the pictures show, it's very Gehry and makes an interesting and unique addition to Panama City's skyline."
