Somewhere, in the middle of nowhere, I snapped a photo of my brother sitting; absorbing the serenity of the night.
This photograph inspired a series that displays places and people I love under the cover of darkness.
Safely obscured by shadows, the characters in this collection are allowing themselves to feel a vulnerability that wouldn’t otherwise be felt in daylight.
