Night Moves

Opening Night © Catherine Rutgers 2013Do you love taking photos at night without using a flash? If you do, good, because that means you’ll understand my attraction to these deeply shadowy, obscure, and ambiguous images.

There seems to be very little information, data, whatever you want to call the DNA that makes up a photo of the dark. But it’s deep. And unpredictable.

Which exactly reflects the torrenting thoughts that clutch me in a new year. Consumed with one picture for the past three months, the payoff is a range of startlingly divergent color and form. The hard part is selecting a few from the flow and the *really tough* part is to stop.
