Another self portrait. I will probably redo this at some point.
(sudden realization that my gratuitous plea for attention is preceded by three selfies. welp.)
Don’t get too close though; stay on your side of the screen.
Lightning Fields by Hiroshi Sugimoto, 2008
Sugimoto’s “Lightning Fields” depict electricity, an element that — especially for photographers working with large-format negatives — has historically been problematic and uncontrollable. Static electricity is well known to scar photographers’ negatives, and consequently to destroy their images. (This is one reason why carpets are not installed in darkrooms.) Viewing the challenge as an opportunity rather than a problem, Sugimoto has inverted the process and made nature’s static scars the focus of his attention.
