Fotoseptiembre at Rendon Photography
Published: September 19, 2012
Local photographer Scott Martin and Massachusetts shooter Lance Keimig are masters of moonlight. Their haunting Fotoseptiembre exhibition at Rendon Photography and Fine Art presents strangely brilliant nightscapes captured through time-lapse photography, but the dream-like effects are abetted with a few lighting tricks of their own. On a hillside in West Texas, a glowing phone booth marks the night sky; in the distant beyond, an anomalous fireplug sits among cactus. From a gashed ravine in the earth comes not shadow, but a warm river of light, hinting at lava lakes or the fires of hell. An old Airstream trailer abandoned on wood pilings pulsates orange as if a desert sunrise was trapped inside. Keimig is a widely-collected photographer and past-curator of the Three Columns Gallery at Harvard University. His book Night Photography – Finding Your Way In The Dark, was published by Focal Press in 2010. Martin has taught photo workshops internationally for 20 years; his work is in many private and public collections. More info and images from their show, only at sacurrent.com.
