A Photo Blog Devoted to Details

A Photo Blog Devoted to Details

It’s been rather foggy lately, so I’m bringing you something to focus on, details from some of the shows I saw this past weekend.
There’s a good anecdote about details from my friend Andy T (I’ll probably butcher the story, sorry Andy).
The guest lecturer asked, why is it that when artists look at artwork they get so close to the piece?
Andy: Because artists want to know how the person did it.
The lecturer: Because you’re STEALING!

This particular detail-based blog was inspired first and foremost by Mark Sengbusch. He really pushed his use of detail to put on a great show that just came down from Lemberg Gallery
