The Kiss of Sitting Bull


|
upward shot of the top of a large cathedral with two towers flanking the center structure, both with a turret at the very top (a steeple). the image is overlaid with light leaks of purple and red, and while the cathedral is lit by the sun, the shadows are green. it looks like the film was ruined, overexposed, or opened up, so the image is saturated with watercolor-ish colors.

Echo


|
abstract image of a close up of a glass filled with red liquid, in front of a background that is blurry and makes a natural gradient: white at the top, a thick band of emerald green, a thin band of lighter green, an even thinner but darker band of green, and then a white strip again that is faded into.

A Conversation with Makoto Fujimura about Georges Rouault


|
two pink roses, one in the front that is blurry, one in the foreground that is in focus, pop their heads out of thick green leaves and shoots that sprout into a milky sky and foreground of trees.

this is a grayscale image: round balloons hover at the top of a church ceiling, underneath the rafters and by the windows which let in a little light into the dusky room.

On Brotherhood and Crucifixion


|
a profile that is almost back of the head of a man driving. He has curly hair and in the front of the image, you can see the blurry top of his hand on the steering wheel. Sun comes in from through the windshield and casts a glow on his face. The whole image is washed in blue and green tones like it's underwater.
