Many of the memorable events in our lives occur at night, a time filled with the thrill of darkness. American Vernacular is a series of photographs of ordinary locations suspended between that darkness and the brilliance of artificial light. Hanging there, the buildings and street corners tell a human story, though few people fill the frames. Instead, their absence helps to illuminate the beauty we often overlook in these familiar places. Luminous in the deep night, these locations become—suddenly—remarkable. Viewers are left to contemplate and reimagine ordinary places they visit during the day and reflect on their own special nighttime memories.
