Adad Hannah, 100 photographs taken at night, 2008.

Lot:

100 photographs taken at night

These prints have been selected and sorted from the thousands and thousands of digital snapshots I have taken over the last nine years since I purchased my first digital camera. I am presenting these sets of 100 photographs in small editions of five archival print boxes. By removing certain photos out of the endless stream of photos taken and putting them ­together into boxed collections new relationships are forged between images which would otherwise be unrelated to one another.

The winning bidder has the right to purchase a larger version of any one of the images, details are inside the box.
