I stumbled across Pierre Le Hors website whilst on my daily nerding rounds. The glory of the internet is that you sift and sift through the unending detritus of pop culture, knowing that you will eventually be rewarded with an artist or an image or an idea so inexplicably delightful, novel or profound that you are changed by it. Le hors projects make me feel that delighted.
On his website he invites you to get in touch, to receive a drawing everyday. I signed up! Below is Firework Studies, which he describes here:
"firework studies is a book compiling photographs of fireworks in the night sky. by constraining nearly all tonal values to stark blacks and pure whites, the trails, explosions and clouds of debris are reduced to a series of simple repeated formal elements: arced lines, spherical bursts, and randomly dispersed particles. i made no effort to limit digital artifacts resulting from pushing the image files past their conventional range; the resulting noise becomes hard to distinguish from the texture of the fireworks themselves."
These are pictures from a dummy book, but it has sine been published by Hassla Books
