From the Artist:

“A City by Dark is a study of cityscapes in Cedar Rapids through a different lens than most see it. Many of the scenes I’ve photographed are things most of us walk past every day without a second thought, but at night they take on a different life. I was initially drawn to this in the mid-2000s. I was working second shift and found myself spending a lot of time walking late at night. I started to see the city differently than I did during the day. The night gave a quiet stillness to the city that juxtaposes nicely with modern day life. The limited light brought depth and contrast that was missing during the day.

Through all of my photography I strive to find the amazing in the everyday, and that started with this project. I hope these photographs can help you see our city a little differently and remember to slow down and see the beauty in everything.”
