Pete Solness

Illuminated Landscape (2009-present)

Peter Solness specializes in night photography. By photographing in the dark, with long exposure times, each landscape becomes a painting of light, in which the sparse natural light becomes mixed with the light of street lamps. The work is an ensemble of the immediacy of photography and the weighed sensibility of painting.
