This selection of photographs by British artist Darren Almond are taken from his evocative Fullmoon series. All the photographs are made by the light of the full moon, using long exposure times of fifteen minutes or more.
Taking the photographs in this way affects the image captured, blurring shadows and forms to reveal a new vision of the landscape. The unexpected light in the images appears to turn night into day. Time is a central aspect of the creation and subject of these ethereal works.
Since 1998, the artist has taken these photographs all around the world. This selection features landscapes in Scotland, Uganda, Hawaii, China and northern Patagonia.
Darren Almond studied at Winchester School of Art. He lives and works in London. He works in a variety of media including photography, film, installation, sculpture and painting. These photographs are on display until 31 May 2020 at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art in Edinburgh.
