Lynn Saville : Night Shift - secret photography in between day and night

Lynn Saville prefers to take pictures during the transition from day to night. She catches the swift moments, when natural light clears the way for street lamps, moonlight, glowing windows, bright adverts and spotlights.

The mulled tone and shadows in her pictures reveal a hidden geometry, the dispersal of daylight. She finds her subjects in places, which leave unanswered questions behind: in deserted factories, side streets, back alleys, highways and abandoned bridges.

The photographer conjures colours, bright and elegant, urban and ambiguous. She creates a unique portrait of New York, which magnetically draws in the viewer. Fractions of the past and the present, seconds before they are swallowed by the shadows.

Lynn Saville lives in New York City and is married to a man of the word. Maybe a hint towards the depth of her work: “ I’m a roamer of limbo regions, one of our last frontiers”

On 144 pages, her book Night Shift transforms day into night and includes an introduction by Arthur C. Danto, honorary professor at the Columbia University. It is available now from www.lynnsaville.com (amongst other sources).

A glimpse of her can be caught at exclusive book signings, for example on the 14th of October at the Stephen Swartzmann Public Library in New York. Further dates are available here
