Justin P. Goodhart Photographs on Display at Kent Public Library
I first started exploring the world of night photography in 2014 and I was very quickly drawn in by the creative possibilities that it offers. “CARPE NOCTEM” features some of my latest works in night photography and consists of exposures that range from a few seconds to over an hour in length. Many of my night photographs aim to capture the sense of the passing of time in a still image, something that I find very fascinating. While others aim to “see” what is not always obvious to the naked eye. I enjoy using night photography to explore our relationship to the universe and the continuum of time, while also, I hope, creating beautiful and captivating images.
I grew up in the Adirondacks and have been fascinated with photography since a very young age and owning my fist camera, a Mickey Mouse 110. After moving to the Hudson Valley in 2009 I started taking photography more serious. It was during an overnight workshop on Bannerman’s Island that my love of night photography was born.
