Noel Kerns is a Texas-based photographer who specializes in capturing ghost towns, decommissioned military bases, and industrial abandonments by night. His images incorporate two distinct photographic techniques: time-exposure by the natural light of a full moon, and the artful application of artificial light, vividly ?painted? into the scene while the camera's shutter is open.
Light-painting is all about vision, says Kerns. Or more accurately, ?pre-vision.? It's the ability to imagine the scene you want to emerge from the darkness, and then to execute it in such a way as to match or surpass what you imagined.
Nightwatch - Noel Kerns is the first book from Kerns, one of the world?s foremost practitioners of the art of light-painting. Join him as he ventures into the darkness of the American Southwest, exploring remote desert ghost towns under a full moon, or prowling the abandoned, seemingly post-apocalyptic structures of America?s industrial wastelands.
In his photographs, Kerns captures the world surreal: flowing cloud-streaks in a night sky, the laser-like light trails of cars racing by on a highway, a raging ocean shoreline rendered eerily calm through long exposure
