Night by Night - Kevin Cooley

Some fantastic long exposures of night scenes captured by Cooley in his project entitled night by night. Cooley's website also contains other interesting bodies of work which gives a real insight into his various processes such as the last two images he includes in this body of work which shows the scale of lighting equipment and preparation which goes into his work. Here is a small sample of night by night. 

Concerned with observing the world Cooley captures a profound and intense mood through his treatment of light, colour and objects. Influenced by artists such as Andy Goldsworthy, Adreas Gursky Gregor Crewdson and James Turrell, Cooley combines both the staged and the real. At first observers focus on the intense light in the images but then realise there are interesting occurrences in the shadows. Cooly is clearly a storyteller, there is a degree of uncertainty, eeriness and enigmas.
