As part of our current theme ‘AFTER DARK’, over on the Life Framer Journal we share our thoughts on some of our favorite night photographers, past and present.
Next up is Edgar Martins. Portuguese-born, Chinese-raised and English-dwelling photographer Edgar Martins uses the night as a tool to create absence – the relentless black creating unsettling feelings of isolation. His series ‘A Metaphysical Survey of British Dwellings’ documents a real-life ‘mock-up’ town built in 2003, and used to train the Firearms and Public Order Units of the UK’s Metropolitan Police. The urban fabric fades into the twilight, and the empty, lonely spaces are unsettling, and perhaps a metaphor for our asocial urban lives.
Similarly in his work ‘The Accidental Theorist’ he presents images taken largely on the same Portuguese beaches over a period of two years. The landscapes are familiar, and yet their emptiness is discordant, inconsistent and disturbing. All that typifies the beach experience is missing, and the environmental turn from places of happiness and spontaneity, to places of silence and melancholy.

A city is not gauged by its length and width, but by the broadness of its vision and the height of its dreams. #whpmoveit

There will always be music.
Stumbled upon this guy sitting in the middle of nowhere just jamming on his guitar in Prins Albert, Western Cape.
Continuing the curated selection of images that I feel really passionate about.
