»Robert Weingarten’s photography helps us to perceive the world in a particular light, literally.« Carol McCusker
This amazing series of photographs by Robert Weingarten was taken over one year, at the same time – 6:30 AM-from the same viewpoint from his home in Malibu, looking south over Santa Monica Bay toward Los Angeles airport. Each image was shot with a 350mm lens using slow-speed, fine-resolution, color-saturated transparency film. The only variables were shutter speed, depending on the quantity of light available, and, most important, the changing Los Angeles sky. “The result of this disciplined process,” writes Getty Museum curator Weston Naef, “was that camera, lens, and film were able to record chromatic effects that elude human perception.”
Robert Weingarten was born in 1941. His photographs are included in numerous collections, among them the J. Paul Getty Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and the Whitney Museum of American Art.
