Night(Light) at NCMA
December 12, 2017
An event every day that begins at 12:00am, repeating until January 28, 2018
Night(Light) explores light as it interacts with darkness in photography. In its purest form, photography harnesses light. The images give shape to light, immortalizing and suspending it.
The eerie feeling of night is not lost in these photographs from the Museum’s permanent collection. Under the cover of darkness, some photographs reveal nighttime mischief and behavior. Others convey the loneliness of night and the lurking desolation in each empty street and unlit hallway. Together, these images of night and light delve into photography’s formal properties and capture the darkest, most enigmatic time of day.
