How is one supposed to resolve such Earth-shattering questions without sending humanity, as we know it, on a downward spiral from which it will never recover?
Thomas Weinberger has one answer. Using a large-format camera, he exposes each negative twice from the same angle: one exposure during the day, and one exposure during the night. This gives his images an eerie effect that looks like a night photograph... but doesn't... sort of.
