Looking at Some Night Photographers

In preparation for teaching my course at Duke, it’s always good to look at some of the bold-faced names in night photography. Here are a few photographers I’ve highlighted in the past:

  • Brassai – Photographer who started it all in the 1930’s with his book Paris at Night.
  • Troy Paiva – He lights up old cars in junkyards, but his work has lit up a generation of night photographers.
  • Michael Kenna – British photographer working in black & white. Sets the standard for contemporary gallery work.

Jason Hawkes

My new favorite photographer for 2017 is Jason Hawkes. His night images of London are amazing – you have to see them on his website:
