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"

Fast Food Photography

The Exposure Project reports on Jon Feinstein’s  new project, “Fast Food”. The Project looks at fast food stripped of its iconography and branding to give a stark look at the food stuffs itself. For me, it brings out the unappetizing, and more realistic, side of the industry. I never get a burger that looks as “hot and juicy” as it did in the commercial.

An irony of this post: I’m sitting in a McDonald’s parking lot as I’m writing this.
