    I love this series! Very cool. You inspired me to try my own. But they weren’t this good!

    Are your photographs for sale? I really admire the Shinkansen Series and am interested in a price list.

      They are for sale, but I haven’t worked out a price list yet. I’ll try to fill one out this weekend and I will definitely let you know as soon as I do.

      Thanks so much for your interest.

    Just brilliant. Please update me when you have your price list. Also, I recommend y’all read the artist statement – particularly the first paragraph. Bravo sir.

    We absolutely love the colours (the blues and greens) in this series of liskotographs. Looking forward to seeing more like it. And lastly our artists statement is very inspiring.

    Same title, same idea, is it coincidence?

      Oh, I dunno. I definitely hadn’t seen his site when I took these. If he’s seen mine and is trying the same idea, I wish him all the best 🙂 People are forever building on work that has come before. I found a painter (I forget the name..but museum-famous) who extruded a series of single pixels across an entire image to the same effect as I’m getting in these. .

    My guess would be no. We were going to go from Tokyo-Osaka (I think) and then back again, and the pass didn’t seem cost effective. But that’s just a guess.
