The ModFab Gallery: Gorin Images Edition

With the combined weight of support from our resident critics Par3182 and Dr.S, voters rallied in last week's ModFab Gallery Best In Show to a surprising but gratifying winner: BlueJake's urban jewel "Reflections in the Melting Snow". Great pick, you art gods and goddesses!

Featured PhotoBlog of the Week:
Gorin Images / "More Mesa Sunset"

If the photoblog world has an equivalent to modernist painters like Rothko and Mondrian, it is undoubtedly Santa Barbara-based photographer Jarrett Gorin. Like those seminal artists, Gorin is fascinated by color, form, and abstraction; he also exhibits a conscious sense of construction in his photographs, whether shooting elegant curves or furrowed edges (both natural or man-made). Looking at his body of work, I'm continually struck by its elegance, its sense of detail, and the inescapable eye of a postmodern artist. (And I'm also thrilled that he manages to vote in every single ModFab Gallery, sharing his smart and thoughtful opinions about the collections in his emails. Thanks, Jarrett!)

And now, viewers...time for you to pick the Best In Show!
