LAS VEGAS 05
Olivo Barbieri

Some time ago, I posted Barbieri's tilt-shift lens aerial photographs. In LAS VEGAS 05, Barbieri ups the ante, applyng his tilt-shift lens to video. I sat through three viewings at SFMOMA and it never lost its magic.

quote #32

She went on at beautiful length about how she used to fly all around the apartment when she was four and no one was home. He said she surely just dreamt that she was able to fly. The baby stood her ground like an angel. She said she knew she was able to fly because when she came down she always had dust on her fingers from touching the light bulbs.

quote #31

I don't find my own experiences very interesting. I find my observations interesting. Maybe that's why I'm a photographer. Maybe an observation is an experience that means more to you than other experiences.
