Editorial Reviews

Review

“Having gained access to a variety of labs on five continents, Brooklyn-based artist Stanley Greenberg has taken ravishing, even intimate photographs of the objects they were built to house—the enormous, phenomenally complex machines used to study subatomic particles. Approaching his subject in the spirit of detailed research, Greenberg achieves a quirky but convincing reconciliation of the imperatives of artistic and scientific investigation. . . . In the end, these may best be seen as portraits of some of the most important and valuable apparatus in science.”
(Art in America 2011-12-20)

 “To the observer, these machines attempting to delve the secrets of the universe have more in common with the monolith in ‘2001’ than they do with any sort of factory or other industrial-era facility. . . . The beauty of such machines owes much to design—their cleanliness and wondrous functionality. It owes even more to the sense of mystery that surrounds them. In his book, Time Machines, the photographer Stanley Greenberg goes at least some way in lessening their mystery—and, if anything, enhancing their beauty. A contemporary Sheeler on an epic scale, he traveled 80,000 miles to photograph scientific facilities on five continents. The results are alternately astonishing and astonishingly mundane.”

(Mark Feeney Boston Globe 2011-11-27)
