About Julie





"The Book of Light" seems, at first, like an odd title for a book of photos that were taken entirely at night. This book, however, is about the contrast between dark and light, the use of night to form a backdrop for manipulated light and long exposure photography. There is nothing in this book that would have been possible to do in daytime.

In October of 2007, I started an experiment in night photography which involved the manipulation and movement of light over extended periods of time.

This book is an exploration into that experiment. It's a kind of technical manual for anyone who wants to try this sort of photography and a gorgeous photo book for those who don't.
