i love this photo, #9

I love this photo by the photographer Noah Addis. Using an 8x10 camera, Addis photographs his subjects using only the light of computer and television screens. The exposures can last 2-3 minutes long, with the result being an interesting combination of contemporary light with traditional equipment. Aside from the color (which Noah doesn't alter), the picture is quite timeless, and makes one think about older photographic practices. There's also the slightly unsettling side to the idea of all this unnatural light illuminating a face, and it made me think of the terrific film Safe.

Kevin - I enjoy Noah's work as well. Do you know he works with me at The Star-Ledger?

How did you come into his work?
