Bruce Mau, Looking Up: One Hundred Images Of Light
Part of a project you can read more about here - you can also view individual images in a reader.
Several years ago I began photographing the sky. This work came first out of my experience of seemingly constant travel. Time after time, my flight would disappear into the clouds and emerge into the brilliant light beyond. Each image at first appears as a simple, almost artifical gradient or flat color. On closer inspection, each surface reveals the dynamic volume and sublte complexity of the natural environment. Occasionally, there are clues that what you are looking at is real - Bruce Mau.
