Nighttime photography; delve into the darkest hours to uncover secrets and mysteries.
Photographers have long embraced the literary and artistic tradition of the night as theme and subject in their work. The romantic notions and sense of mystery associated with the night, and the transformation from the mundane world to the unknown provide ample material for photographers to explore through their work.
Tim Baskerville, founder of the night photography organization The Nocturnes has said, “Surrealism, the mystery of place, solitude, and a heightened sense of the nature of things – night photography seems a worthy vehicle, a ritual to express these themes.”
Juror, Lance Keimig states, ” The night holds secrets- secrets that may engage our curiosity, shelter us, or frighten us. There are those who seek comfort in the night and those who recoil from it. Brave was the anchestor who stepped outside of the fire circle for he might never return. The interplay of light, shadow, and extremes of contrast heighten this uncertainty – and when the element of time is added in the form of long exposures, the Night Photograph is indeed a worthy vehicle to express these themes.”
Darkroom Gallery is calling for nighttime imagery that conveys mystery, surrealism, isolation, loneliness, and time/timelessness.
