I didn’t intend to take these photos that night in Denver. I was doing a photoshoot for a different project – a fashion shoot with friends to be specific. We were surrounded by life. The calm came later during our drive back home. With the help of long exposure times, I was able to capture these photos from the comfort of our car.
Night Cataclysm is a representation of the vibrancy of a city at night. The two photos show the duality of the constant electricity of a sleepless city versus the calm sensations of feeling at home. If I were to use just one word to describe this diptych, it would be “nostalgia.”
