nyctophilia: love of darkness. finding relaxation or comfort in the darkness . . Having never really been a “morning person” there are few things I enjoy more than the solitude and peacefulness of the still, dark night. From a visual perspective, I love how the night forces one to work with existing light, how it allows your to create a frame with it’s blackness and how, as I walk in silence I am alone, yet an observer to life.
