A marriage of both urban and natural spaces, American photographer David Allee references his childhood and youth through nocturnal landscapes in New York City and the foothills of the Berkshire Mountains.
Allee hints his experiences of fear in darkness through artificially illuminated scenery, turning them to some sort of fantastical and wistful images of familiar places. The work embodies his desire to reconcile his fears as an adult through the manifestations of childhood experience, amassed visual memory and nostalgia. The series "Chasing Firefly" can also be said that it is a reference to Allee's fatherhood, questions the relationship of father and child and teaching the darker realities of the world: light within darkness.
