Contemporary Fine Art Photography Night Landscapes

I’m currently working on a new project regarding night landscapes. In my continued pursuit to photograph feelings and emotions, I am experimenting with the landscape as an emotion, in particular the night-time landscape. In the past, much of my work focused on themes of depression, loneliness and isolation. In this body of work, I photographed models, at home in their un-altered living spaces. That project examined the isolation and loneliness that often accompany the fashion and glamour industry.

In these nightscapes my concern will be the negative space in the image, this will allow the viewer to come to his or her own interpretation of the work, hopefully on a personal level.

More to come…..
