I Photographed at a 19th Century French Chateau at Night. This is What it Looks Like

As an Artist-in-Residence, I photographed around this Nineteenth Chateau in Canet, France.

Mostly, I would work from around twilight or nightfall to about four in the morning. During the full moon, the light cascading through the forest or through the chateau was eerie and compelling.

The exposures lasted about forty minutes each. While waiting, I would walk through the woods.

Until the End of the World: Wyoming Night

It Seems Like the End is Near: Night Photography in Wyoming

The town of Buffalo is about twenty miles away, but it oddly glowed in the foggy night. Strange.

Later it rained, and nearby on the main road, a truck stopped in the middle of the road with no driver; moments later it was gone.

 

Searingly Clear, Lyrical Portrait: Dru Lying Down

Dru, Eagles Mere, Pennsylvania.

We came across a strange yurt-like structure; it was unlocked, so we went in. The light was perfect as Dru laid down.

Photographs from a Recent Commission, for the site Monegraph

A Recent Commission of Photographs for the Site Monegraph

Monegraph, co-founded by Kevin McCoy, reached out to me a while back,  and commissioned a group of photographs for their site. Here are some of them.

They have a curious approach: Monegraph is a mix between an online agent and an editioned photo print portfolio.  Here, unlike other sites selling art work and photographs online, the emphasis is on digital editions of images–not actual prints–which is an interesting approach.  Once you have an electronic copy, you can use it in the real world (print it, include it in a web site, etc.), or even it sell it again on the site.  Everything stays on the online realm, and individual images are tracked; editions can range from a few or dozens or maybe a hundred.

As more art and photos claim a stake online, perhaps this is the way of the future?
