Theme: Between Dusk and Dawn

Between the last light of day and the first rays of dawn, the world as we normally see it transforms to one in which nightclubs, all-night stores, third shift workers, and nocturnal wildlife take center stage. Spaces abuzz with activity during the day become quiet and desolate, and artificial light transforms mundane spaces into something almost magical. Photographers who work at night experience a nocturnal world through which most sleep.

The perception of night is different for each photographer. For some, the darkness can present a time for reflection and repose, for others, the fear of the unknown instills feelings of anxiety and uncertainty. For Between Dusk and Dawn, The Kiernan Gallery seeks images that explore the night or other darkness visually, metaphorically, and emotionally.
