Wow… These shadows are amazing! Very beautiful. Seeing these images and reading this made me think about In Praise of Shadows by Junichiro Tanizaki. This is a really great read on light and the power and subtlety of its absence in traditional Japanese aesthetics and architecture. Luis Barragan is so wonderful and inspiring – his use of light, plane, color. Great post, as always! Have fun in NYC, T & B!
These are wonderful…I can’t get over that light made of the nutmeg graters! And I like that line about the lighting in homes…no one pays attention to it and it always ends up being either incredibly bright or dull looking.
