How to Look at Night

"Night is when most of us stop looking--after all, it is when there is nothing to see" (James Elkin, p. 215).

As an artist, I have been fascinated and often awed by what I see and imagine I see at night.  Below are a few images I have made during the last five years in which night is prominent.
