Photographer Matt Wessen (b. 1982 in Los Angeles, California) extracts the moods and movements of two circadian occurrences we all have the opportunity to witness every day: the sunrise and the sunset. Typically thought of as either impossible to capture in a way that’s true to the experience — or else clichéd and sentimental — Wessen instead uses abstraction to organize a daily ritual into a show that is colorful, bold and graphic, more akin to a PANTONE color book than nature photography. Made using giclée print.
