beautiful book of grainy black-and-white fireworks, designed by Pierre Le Hors. He says:
firework studies is a book compiling photographs of fireworks in the night sky. by constraining nearly all tonal values to stark blacks and pure whites, the trails, explosions and clouds of debris are reduced to a series of simple repeated formal elements: arced lines, spherical bursts, and randomly dispersed particles. i made no effort to limit digital artifacts resulting from pushing the image files past their conventional range; the resulting noise becomes hard to distinguish from the texture of the fireworks themselves.Couldn't resist adding this to my library, and it feels so good in my sloppily red-manicured hands. I like the idea of "reading" it: a couple giggles every now and then, maybe a tear-filled chapter, but definitely a happy ending.
