The photography of impacts

Speaking of scenic photos (see last post), I came across this interesting profile of Stan Gaz, who a few years ago began to study meteoric impacts through photography. In this bigger version of the above image, you can see better detail, including the man-made structures sitting next to it, which gives it a more obvious scale of size.

Starting today and running through June 6, Gaz will have his work on display in New York City at ClampArt.

An opening reception for Stan Gaz: Impact will be held 6–8pm, which I think are almost always worth going to, and not only for the free food, but also to hear some of the ideas behind the artist’s work.
