Nova Expressed Café was the creation of conceptual artist and sculptor Cary Long, and was in existence from 1993 to 2008 when it closed due to gentrification. Much of the decor was fabricated from found objects and materials. It served great pizza, sandwiches and salads, and was an alternative performance space. After the Café closed in February 2008, I was asked to photograph the premises. To preserve a record of my client's concept, I used the technique of high dynamic range imaging. This allowed me to photograph using the existing lighting without augmentation.
