In addition to checking out the kite festival this past weekend, the amazingly prolific artist Rania Hassan and i went to see the Hiroshi Sugimoto exhibit at the Hirshhorn.
Generally speaking photography isnt my thing. its very rare when i LOVE a photographer, and when i do it's depite the medium. But i loved this show. the series from which the pic above is taken, a magic vista from the inside of a temple, amazing blury buildings, and a series of seascapes were truly transcendant.
the studies of shadows ( or whatever) series was amazingly ( and yep typically) dull.
nonetheless i highly encourage you to see this. not for all the philosophical critical nonesense, but because he is a fine artist. that link by the way is to a fine critical review.
I should note that i do have a particular weakness in my attraction to toy cameras.
