Phoenix is intense and harsh under the daylight sun, yet magical and beautiful at night when color is sultry and saturated - it’s palatable. A time when color reveals itself as tangible. I want to capture this heady mix within the urban landscape. Deliberately devoid of humans, my photography centers on architecture, streetscapes, city vistas - the lesser seen and the unseen within a human built framework.
Night Water is my series exploring Phoenix at night - focused solely on the nine canal systems. Scenes here are from portions of two of the nine.
I am motivated by knowing I will find something. Something beautiful, intriguing and worthwhile. It’s within this process; seeking, seeing, capturing - this is where I am most at home, this is where I want to be - here in the desert, at night.
