William Eckersley: Dark City

Posted by James Cartwright,

We’re not big fans of night photography, or rather we’ve seen very little after-dark imagery that really excites us. Long exposure shots so often contain streaked red and white lights dividing up the frame and creating a false luminosity that never truly reflects dusk. Night-time is beautiful and alluring but really difficult to reproduce on film. Enter William Eckersley, a London-based photographer who’s spent the last four years capturing beautiful nocturnal landscapes around the city. Football pitches, satellite fields and supermarket car parks take on an ethereal quality under the skillful manipulation of his lens – a beautiful exception to the rule.
