Into the Night In the Middle of Nowhere
Every year for the past dozen years I have gone to a place in Southern New Hampshire, in August and photographed the night. Beginning around 10pm the stars appear: thousands of them- a sight so enchanting I stand there in silent awe. These are long exposures, 45 minutes to an hour and strange things happen: mists come and cover the lens, stars streak and moons rise and fall. No ambient light intrudes other than my flashlight or the occasional house lights. Using a flashlight, I record myself again and again in the midst of this dark mysterious space. In this still whispering night in the middle of nowhere, my camera reveals a world invisible to my eyes. I use film, scanned and optimized for color and contrast but otherwise unmanipulated by the computer.
