The ModFab Gallery: Staring at the Sun Edition

Featured PhotoBlog of the Week:
Staring at the Sun / "Finding an Old Songbook"

Dirk Jesse, a civil engineer and photoblogger from Dresden, Germany, creates works that are no doubt modern and contemporary. Perusing Staring at the Sun, however, one can't help but feel the pull of magic realism in his work, an awed electricity. Cityscapes, pictures of his girlfriend, or even everyday objects like the one above are treated with such reverent delicacy that the work leaps from reality into a higher, mythic plane. The result is an exquisite personal vision, ripe with metaphor and symbology. We love it!
