6:30 A.M.

6:30 A.M. By Robert Weingarten. Hatje Cantz, 2005. 120 pp., illustrated throughout, 30x29,6cm. Images from here.

Book description:

"This amazing series of photographs by Robert Weingarten was taken over one year, at the same time - 6:30 AM - from the same viewpoint from his home in Malibu, looking south over Santa Monica Bay toward Los Angeles airport.

Each image was shot with a 350mm lens using slow-speed, fine-resolution, color-saturated transparency film. The only variables were shutter speed, depending on the quantity of light available, and, most important, the changing Los Angeles sky.

'The result of this disciplined process', writes Getty Museum curator Weston Naef, 'was that camera, lens, and film were able to record chromatic effects that elude human perception'."
