the darkness has its own beauty. the shapes, the reflections, the silhouettes. there are a few things that daylight can never offer.
that’s precisely why night photography has a charm of its own. and the reason why many photographers around the world are captivated towards it.
but guillaume prugniel jechoux was different. his initiation into night photography is something a lot of us can relate too. he said, he simply isn’t a morning person. and waking up everyday at 4 am to travel to an abandoned area to photograph it was just too difficult. so he started going at night.
and we’re oh so grateful for that. guillaume is a french artist – photographer who lives in berlin. and has a passion for light and colours. he has an interesting style wherein he doesn’t capture a place the way it is, but tries to distort reality and give it a new purpose.
and the results are quite fascinating. in his series titled, ‘enlighten the void’, he visits a wide variety of places like, abandoned bunkers, reactor cores and even abandoned greenhouses.
