Toronto. Daniel Freeman of the UK is a photographer who enjoys taking night scenes. He writes, “Fascinated by the way the world appears at night, I am drawn by a compulsion to photograph in the times when everything is at its quietest. While the hustle and bustle recedes and recharges, I embrace the darkness to capture locations that rest silently under the cover of darkness and flaunt their beauty in the hours between dusk and dawn.
“I have specialised in night photography for over a decade, with travelling always at the forefront of what I do. The sense of motion and adventure are regular contributors to the discovery of locations, scenes and subjects, as well as the image creation itself. Whether the other side of the world or just a few miles from home, the feeling of tranquility and escapism offered by the night keeps me hooked.
“I hold a Fellowship with the British Institute of Professional Photography (BIPP) and Qualified European Photographer (QEP) with the Federation of European Photographers (FEP) for my nocturnal work. My photography has featured in a number of online and print publications, and my photobook ‘Midnight on Main’ was published by Hatje Cantz Verlag in November 2020. I also hold a full PGCE teaching qualification and lecture at photographic seminars and education establishments.”
On March 29th of this year, the BBC News posted an article on Freeman called, “Photographing the ‘endless diversity’ of America by streetlight” covering his trip to the states to take photographs.
I don’t know just how George Dunbar discovers these websites, but I am grateful that he generously shares them with members of the PHSC executive – especially this website!
NB. Suzanne Vega’s haunting song “Night Vision” comes to mind when I see these wonderful images by Daniel Freeman.
