Photographing at night becomes a trip into a new atmosphere where photographer and subject become intimate with one another. Nature becomes closer, capable of becoming treacherously inviting. The artificial light clashing with natural light becomes seductive drawing the eye to its intensity. Hearing your own breath moving in and out and the wind passing by your ears creating a steady rhythm inspires picture making.

Searching around in darkness presents small surprises. Night photography has a way of creating colors that were not processed at first sight. The beauty of a long exposure takes how the eye views the subject matter and enhances what is seen. Artificial light at night has the impeccable ability to abstract what natural light ordinarily reveals. My interest lies deeply within what artificial light exposes of the censored night allowing an ability to capture new forms created by the seed of light in the midst of darkness.
