New Dimensions
Morgan Shapiro

Shooting night photography allows me to capture light in a way the human eye cannot. By photographing at night the scene becomes peaceful, quiet, and more importantly, my own. The experience turns into an unexpected source of adventure where the image can transform into something magical. The mystery of not knowing how the image will appear is exhilarating and rewarding. The presence of light is shown throughout all my work, portraying the fleetingness of each moment in life and how precious time is.
