Photography is my passion, especially night photography of urban
landscapes. I love the light that you find at night and at twilight. I’m attracted
to it like a moth. This light has magical properties that instantly adds mood to
any image. It reminds me a lot of the experience you get taking forest shots
in the fog, all of the clutter of day-to-day life fades away, letting you see and
feel more clearly the moods and emotions in the places we move about during
the day. There is a simplicity and clarity that is revealed when the sun goes
down and people go indoors. We are left alone in the landscape with our
It might be the clarity of the light or the general absence of people, but I find
you can see and think through a shot much more clearly at night. Emotions
are more heightened and raw, words are not necessary, it all gets distilled
down to feelings, how the scene makes you feel. Sometimes you come
across a place lit by a pool of light that has a distinct mood, sometimes you
can capture it and sometimes it eludes you, it’s always a challenge.
Like all photography, urban landscapes taken at night will only work if you
take care with the composition and perspective. I try for simplicity, and a
perspective that invites you to step into the image and to look around at what
is in front of you and sometimes even imagine what might also be behind you.
My images I hope evoke a story or highlight an emotion or memory, what they
may be, I leave to you. I hope you find the photographs here interesting.
