What happens to streets when everyone goes to bed? The Prints of Darkness answers this question through large format, black and white photographs, depicting heritage towns, streetscapes and lesserknown features in the night. Taking the viewer into the frozen time of low-light, long exposure photography where an image can compress an hour into a single moment, the exhibition illustrates the moments where all that is fleeting is lost, and only what endures remains.
Stephen Hall’s fascination with large format and night-time photography is part of an evolving relationship over the last 30 years with the landscape and its depiction through the camera. He is primarily a landscape photographer, and sees streetscapes, buildings and modified environments as another aspect of the landscape.
