Photographer Kevin Cooley – Light in the Darkness.
Kevin Cooley, 1975, USA, is a landscape photographer and video artist especially known for his night photography. In 2000 he received an M.F.A. at The School of Visual Arts in New York. He often uses man made light sources creating unusual and strong effects. He has followed film crews at night (series: Night for Night) or the tourist boats with powerful floodlights in Paris (series: Bateaux Mouches) “borrowing” their light to create images of urban landscapes
For his project titled Take Refuge, Los Angeles-based photographer Kevin Cooley shot nighttime landscape photographs with an interesting choice of lighting: military-grade flares — the kind you find in emergency kits. Each image in the series features the same red glow, whether the flare is held in a subject’s hand or hidden behind a feature in the landscape.
