Michael Eastman
American, b. 1947

“I’m drawn to things that either reflect light or transmit light,” self-taught photographer Michael Eastman has said of his luminous, exquisitely formal mid- to large-scale photographs of architectural spaces and exteriors, natural landscapes, vanishing American towns, and horses. Inspired by Edward Weston’s diaries and Ansel Adams’s “zone system,” he began working in black-and-white film, switching to color in the 1980s. He compares himself to a painter, wielding his camera like a brush and seeing the world as a palette, full of lush colors and textures, patinaed surfaces, and, always, light. Through precise framing, Eastman makes the overlooked extraordinary and, often, abstract. He has turned a Havana living room into a portrait of its occupant, and a Tokyo hallway into a Light & Space installation. “You can’t do more as an artist than change the way a person sees the world,” he says.
