Chroma By Night
This project is a study of isolated objects located within the landscape at night. Colour is used to create a theatrical effect and add drama to the compositions, as though they were the set in a narrative with a story waiting to unfold in front of the camera. The subjects in the compositions range from a Martello Tower or a standing stone to a rowing boat and an outdoor swimming bath changing room; however, all share their isolation in the landscape and are plucked out of their environment by coloured light while their surroundings are plunged into the darkness of the night. The objects singled out in the project are isolated and solitary yet through the addition of colour and light they become alive and vibrant. The series of images is intended to dispel the myth of night as a time of menace and insecurity revealing a hidden world of animation and spirit.
