Alan Sailer was a “very, very obscure photographer working in his garage shooting stuff with a pellet rifle and photographing the results with a home built flash.” until one day in 2009, his photos were posted to a social networking site and he began to receive a large amount of attention for his work.
in his studio, also known as his garage, he built a high speed flash – he doesn’t recommend you build one on your own. his photos capture the perfect moment, the moment where you can still make out what the object is and a moment that we would never be able to see without this photograph.
he photographs anything and everything he wants. his subjects range from playing cards, to baseballs, to crayons to strawberries. he shoots stuff he finds around the house, or goes to garage sales and picks out the cool stuff, like a snow globe he bought for 50 cents. this image is titled “The War Against Christmas Part X.”
now he refers to himself as a “slightly less obscure photographer.”
what do you guys think of his work? how does it, uh, strike you!?
