Darren's astonishing moonlit photography captures eerie night scenes around Britain. Some look like they could have been taken on a misty day, others reveal more about the landscape than we notice in the daylight, while some are simply otherworldly. Almond has been making his Fullmoon photographs since 1998, when a chance encounter led him to develop the idea of night-time photography using the iridescence of moonlight with an extremely lengthy exposure time. The result is an ongoing series of landscape photographs that are bathed in an eerie brightness, seemingly, and rather alarmingly, turning night into day.
In Almond's images, waterfalls and gushing lakes are transformed into pools of static steam. Always unpopulated, his landscapes suggest the possibility of another existence, a reality without the seething masses of humanity, which can only appear in the dead of night. (G.
