CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Lynn Saville photographs New York during the time of transition from daylight
to night, the fleeting moments when natural light gives way to streetlight,
moonlight, window light, and advertisement and surveillance lighting. Subdued
tones and shadows reveal a geometry hidden beneath the visual distractions of
daylight. Saville has sought out places that seem questionable—deserted
factories, back alleys, the shadowy infrastructure of urban highways and
bridges that suggest the city’s exoskeleton.
Unpopulated and sometimes unsettling, these images can be read on many levels;
their evocative colors can seem garish or sublime. Taken together the
photographs of Night/Shift create a unique portrait of the city and a personal
meditation for each viewer.
