John Houck‘s photographic series To The Things captures the physical properties of the spiritual and logical, as well as many of their mechanical elements. Light may resemble higher reasoning in one photograph, and in another it acts as one of many products used to manufacture such an effect. Houck’s McNoon Lighting falls squarely in the latter category, and is currently in our masthead. We highly recommend his website.
