The San Francisco Chronicle came out with a great piece on the Nocturnes Night Photography group, who are having their 20th Anniversary celebration and exhibit at Harvey Milk Photography Center on November 9th… The piece features Stever Harper, who was the first night photographer to teach the craft. Harper’s work, pictured above, will be showcased in the exhibit.
Harper explains the process of night photography as very zen-like, “Knowing that the Earth is turning and the planets are moving in correlation to it, and the stars and the moon” is a spiritual revelation.
Nocturnes founder and 20th Anniversary Show organizer Tim Baskerville explained night photography to be, “more of a contemplative process. Strange things happen on film that the naked eye does not see.”
