nice, i saw an exhibit of his work last year. it was a series of photos like the second you posted, with the white burned-out spheres. however, instead of exhibiting standard prints, all the photos were transparancies mounted on light boxes, so the burned-out spots glowed.

really amazing stuff.

where was the exhibition held? man, i would LOVE to see his work in person. i wonder what's his technique.

it was in the koch gallery.

i bought a book on the series with the blown out lights. apparently he uses a darkening filter and does super-long exposures while moving to spots in the scene and using a flashlight/hand mirror to reflect light back at the camera.

er whoops. same building, wrong gallery. the koch has good stuff though, they've had an edward burtynsky exhibit before, and i caught an awesome michael wolf exhibit when i was there.

the sato exhibit was at the haines gallery.

they have one picture of the exhibit setup here.

ahh nice. i love it when photographers play with long exposures. like solidifying light.

Hi, I found this blog by chance.
I think you have the same kind of taste for art as mine! I really like the things you posted here. Especially this photographer's work...I like it very, very much too.
