This is James Casabere. He creates these miniatures of stark and desolate spaces which are then photographed and printed (in large sizes..). I haven't seen one in person. I just ran into his work for the first time a few weeks ago so I'm not familiar with it at all.

This image is incredible. I'm not sure the distance from the explosion that it's shot from, nor the altitude of its top (10thousand to15thousandfeet?).
Sabre-rattlers out there take note, and be wary of your war mongering.
I just began reading Kevin Brockmeier's new collection of short fiction, The View From the Seventh Layer. After Things That Fall From The Sky, and A Brief History of the Dead I've developed a real appetite for his work.
In an effort to save cash, more frequent trips to the Library have temporarily added these books to the coffee table:
1)Phaidon's SCULPTURE TODAY
2)The Architectural Unconscious (James Casabere + Glen Seator)
3)The New Urban Landscape , edited by Richard Martin
4)PAUL McCarthy, published by the New Museum of Contemporary Art , NY
a great list...I'm suddenly very interested in James Casabere's photographed miniature spaces, especially the flooded ones. I'll have to look for an image to post here.
