Photograph by Peter Coffin Studio
Over the course of several years, Peter Coffin collected four-by-six inch photographs of rainbows from junk stores, estate sales, and drugstore photo counters, and combined them, connecting the rainbows arch to arch into this large spiral. The photographs reveal a common point of interest and amazement among strangers, and speak to a primal wonderment brought about by this combination of sun and mist.
