Burning Chrome by Norihisa Hosaka

As I was passing by the National Library last night there were some photographic exhibits on the side of some containers (big container-ship containers). They were all part of the Singapore International Photographic Festival (SIPF) which I will blog about at a later date. What caught my eye was the exhibit by the Japanese photographer, Norihisa Hosaka called Burning Chrome. I took a photo (badly) with my phone but really liked the capture of lights at night with no colour. There’s something painterly about the capture. I wonder if he took the colour out after the tsunami in 2011 as his biog refers to how affected he was by the tragic event. The photos looked as if they had been treated (somewhat looking like HDR) but need to look into the exhibition/series to find out more.
