Sugimoto and U2

You can hear the new single from U2, Get On Your Boots at their website. I like the intensity of the song – sort of like “Vertigo”. But it also has a different feel in the chorus, like Beetles but not, like middle eastern tuning but only for a second. U2 continues to grow artistically.

I also like the Sugimoto photo for the cover art. I was able to see a collection of his work at the Hirshhorn Museum in DC. It was a great exhibit and quickly turned me into a Sugimoto fan. I really enjoy minimalism in photography.

In fact I have attempted to recreate some of his ideas once while visiting Lake Erie.  Here is one of my feeble attempts:


Anyway, good song. I can’t wait for the album.

Get "No Line On The Horizon"

Catching up

It has been a while since I have posted here.

The photo below is part of a series of photos that I created this fall from leaf imprints on concrete. I know that sounds really fascinating. What I wanted to do is set up a dialogue about nature vs.. man-made, temporal vs.. permanent. But this photo was unique in that it had a dried branch with a couple of leaves. As I transformed it, the photo took on a life of its own. I like the sense of Japanese minimalism, though I wouldn’t claim to be an expert on that subject. I like how it lends to the introspection I desired of the leaf imprint study.
