If there are diverse kinds of knowledge and ways of knowing place, then we need to learn to value the different ways each of us sees a single place that is significant, but differently so, for each perspective.

nocturnal photography: Effie Paleologou « Previous | |Next »
December 7, 2012

Contemporary nocturnal photography reaches back to the Surrealist and Situationist wandering the city. The city by day is a crowded and lively place. By night, empty corners and dark shadows can suggest sinister possibilities and create a highly charged atmosphere.

One example of contemporary nocturnal photography is Effie Paleologou's Mean City, which emerges out of her walking at night through the city of Hasting, an unfamiliar city:

There is a sense of a psychological unease as well as a sense of an absence and longing.
