A week ago today, I had no homework tonight. The same goes for this night, but what's different is that last Tuesday, I was on an Art field trip in Chicago. The day was beautiful, in the 70s with blue skies and a tempting green park. I love the Chicago Art Institute so a group of friends and I looked for the one part of the museum that upon visiting I had never seen and that was the photography area. Exhibited was photographer Tokihiro Sato. This is one of my favorite prints:



"How did he do that?" one might ask because I know I did. Tokihiro Sato exposed the film for one to three hours at a time. He had about 13 pictures on display so one would figure at least two hours for each picture, only to take it, not to mention processing and enlarging. I know this task very well. It takes me one day (in class) to process and several days after to print my pictures. This was some hard work. When pictures were taken at night, Sato used a flashlight to create the line effect. He also used mirrors to reflect light (during the day) into the camera as to create dots throughout the picture, so it's as if his essence is there, but not to the point you could see it. I would've taken a picture of an example of this, but a security guard told me I couldn't photograph his work. Too late.

And to conclude, I found this interesting at the museum as well:
