Nightscapes is a series of eerie, yet strangely beautiful landscapes, that emerge when abandoned structures are left to decay without human interaction or habitation. The series also documents the physical decline of the historically significant Naval Air Station in Alameda, California.
I shot the series on a Pentax 6×7 medium format camera using expired Fuji 64 Tungsten film over five years from 2017 to 2022.
For me, these decaying structures are a metaphor for the loss, sadness, and longing for a human element that is no longer present. These colorful, but aging buildings are now only hollow carcasses of their proud former selves. They are a stark reminder of the blunt absence we feel when we lose those who are close, and only the ghostly memories remain.
