day light / watching the moon

A series of new landscape works shot along the West Coast region of the United States.
Throughout 2013, Ken Kitano stayed in Los Angeles, California to shoot a group of landscape photographs as a follow-up to his former landscape series, “one day.” The technique he employed for these works involves long exposures during both night and day to capture desert landscapes, seashores, and downtown Los Angeles cityscapes within fixed spans of time. His photographs also treat icons of contemporary American society, depicting McDonald’s and Burger King signboards with the sun tracing out its bright path in the background. Another part of this new series by Kitano follows the movement of the moon across the night sky, while registering the relative rotation of the residential neighborhoods lining the beaches of California. “Watching the sun” and “Watching the moon” are the titles that have been chosen for these two bodies of work.
