The Israeli photographer Rafaelk Y. Herman devised his own method of nighttime photography in the absence of electronic aids and digital manipulation, relying only with his analogue background.
His latest series "The Night Illuminates the Night" boasts his works that began in 2010 and ended in 2016; a collection of large, environmental installations emerging from darkness. The landscapes are 'recreated' realities; the unnatural, pastel hues completely different from the norms of nocturnal photography breaks the ground. The concepts of light and darkness are challenged as the nighttime photographs defy the darkness that is known for. With shots from the Forest of Galilee, the Judaean mountains and the Mediterranean Sea, Herman encourages everyone to 'see' beyond the visible.
The show The Night Illuminates the Night are currently up for viewing at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Rome.
The exhibition will run through March 26.
