Ol’ Blue Eyes
The Guardian ran a story about this photograph by Giacomo Brunelli a little while back. It’s unreal.
It was about 10 in the morning when I took this photograph. The light was coming from behind me. There was a tree that protected the scene from direct sunlight, allowing me to take the picture with a beautiful diffused light. I didn’t use any kind of filter, nor did I have to do anything to the image the dark-room. I took eight or nine shots on black-and-white film, and I was just lucky the dog’s eyes were lit so well.
As it turns out, this wasn’t lightning in a bottle. His other work offers a similar unreality. Creepshow of wonder.
