"This new series is inspired by the properties of physical matter and the way it interacts with light. When I discovered this huge steel dish, I was immediately attracted to the dual circles, reminiscent of a planetary system with a sun. As with most of my photography, you see it exactly as I found it—I haven't manipulated the photograph in any way. There is a mystical quality to the arrangement of the circles with the patterns and their visual characteristics, which I have enhanced by applying gold foil by hand to follow the contours and textures of the image.” –Nat Coalson
