Guest Photo of the Day: Michael Dörr


., originally uploaded by Michael Dörr.
For some photographers, a dreamlike quality permeates their work. This is certainly the case with Michael Dörr, especially in his back and white photography. It's less a case of subdued reality, though, than hyper-reality, in which layers of meaning become visible, at least intuitively, in the expressions on his subjects' faces, the way the light shines on them like an aura. I'm not exactly sure how he achieves this feat, but I certainly love looking at it.
