Lynn Saville: Dark City, 2015

photo-eye link

It's always a bit disconcerting when you see a picture that overlaps with something of your own. The heavy plant parked up at night was a subject of mine several years ago, I didn't think anyone else was likely to be doing the same thing, and if they did that they'd actually get published. The image below is also the full-bleed cover of Lynn Saville's book, 'Dark City'. As it turns out she's not particularly covering the specific subject matter of construction sites (or using the light of the full moon, either), she's simply a nocturnist, as urban night photographers are apparently now called. There's a lot of really good things going on in that photograph and I also the one on the right hand page of the spread below, and not just because it's got building work going on in it, but that doesn't hurt.
