Temporal Drift, 2003
Through long exposures at night, overlooked industrial scenes are transformed into compelling, otherworldly environments. These photographs awaken our imagination by providing an alternate view of landscapes that often go unnoticed. While absent of people, these images also act as a documentation of human life. The ground-level perspectives, contrasting light and seductive complementary colors create a feeling of unease and curiosity, while a prevailing tension exists by revealing details that are hidden in the shadow of night and often ignored by day.
