Wandering around at night, paying attention to the world around you, you notice interesting details everywhere you go. Here, a typical tall apartment block with a variation. One bright light marking the top of the exterior stairs, splashing illumination across the exterior of the building like an abstracted lighthouse.
My response to many (most?) things in life is to go for a walk. This particular evening, I had found myself in a bad, bad mood. If I sat down with that mood, I'd be uncomfortable. If I went to bed, I'd be sleepless.
So instead, I went for a walk.
And my reward for that walk was a number of observations that turned into photographs, including this one.
Original photography by David R Munson. Captured in 2017 in Musashi Ward, Saitama City, Japan.
Image size is about 7x9 inches (18x23cm), printed on high-quality 8x10 inch (20x25cm) Hahnemühle photo gloss baryta paper using archival inks. This print is part of a project in which I will release a new print in an open edition every month.
I have always preferred to print my work in smaller sizes. Smaller prints are more intimate. They don’t dominate a space, but rather punctuate it and invite you to get closer. You have to get closer to them to examine their contents. This is something I value as both an artist and a collector of art.
Prints ship from San Antonio, Texas, in the United States.
