Nightwatch: Painting with Light

Author(s): KERNS, Noel

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
In Nightwatch: Painting with Light, photographer Noel Kerns brings us a glimpse into a nocturnal world of abandoned wastelands...both urban and rural. A deserted drive-in on the edge of forever, a decommissioned military base, a small town being consumed by its own toxic waste. Kerns uses a technique called Light-Painting to bring these decaying relics back to life, revealing latent details that lead our eyes and imaginations on a journey to a secret twilight zone where the ghosts of our discarded past rise from the ruins in a surreal spectacle of light. These photographs mark all that remain of failed ideas and broken things, artifacts of human enterprise vanishing even as the shutter falls. With light and dark, motion and stillness, Kerns shows us the forlorn, forgotten, often inexplicable things he finds in the isolated places that call to him in the night. Places that we too may visit, in Night Watch: Painting with Light.

Details

In Nightwatch: Painting with Light, photographer Noel Kerns brings us a glimpse into a nocturnal world of abandoned wastelands...both urban and rural. A deserted drive-in on the edge of forever, a decommissioned military base, a small town being consumed by its own toxic waste. Kerns uses a technique called Light-Painting to bring these decaying relics back to life, revealing latent details that lead our eyes and imaginations on a journey to a secret twilight zone where the ghosts of our discarded past rise from the ruins in a surreal spectacle of light. These photographs mark all that remain of failed ideas and broken things, artifacts of human enterprise vanishing even as the shutter falls. With light and dark, motion and stillness. NIGHTWATCH: PAINTING WITH LIGHT is the first book from Kerns, one of the world’s foremost practitioners of the art of light-painting. Join him as he ventures into the darkness of the American Southwest, exploring remote desert ghost towns under a full moon, or prowling the abandoned, seemingly post-apocalyptic structures of America’s industrial wastelands. Kerns shares with the reader a nocturnal world that reveals its dreamlike details only when time, moonlight, and the light-painter’s hand combine to tell the story covering Route 66, California, Nevada, Michigan and Texas.
