I’m always shocked at how hard some adults work to keep youth readers from confronting what actually exists in the world.
Alright, who’s responsible for this?
Nobody can ever convince me that Depp was a better Wonka.

Starting in the late 1970s, Hiroshi Sugimoto took pictures of cinemas interiors and drive-ins with the aim of encapsulate the whole lenght of a movie in a single shot. He left the camera shutters open throughout the running of a movie and the glowing screen of the cinemas was left as a trace on each take. A somehow uncanny light resonates in the dark cinema halls. At a further glance, this central light ethereally underlines the rich architectural details of the theater interiors. You might want to confront Sugimoto’s work with Michael Wesely’s, a photographer that uses to take photographs featuringi 3 years long exposures: read “The passing of time“, (on Socks).
This is the proper reaction.
