Tuesday, June 09, 2009 | |

Photographer Lynn Saville has a new book out called Night/Shift, published by Random House! Saville specializes in night photography, capturing the after-hours landscapes of our favorite and unexpected neighborhoods.

Check out her book talk in Brooklyn this Friday June 12th, at 7:00 PM:

From his introduction to Night/Shift Arthur C. Danto says...
"Atget recorded Paris in the early morning, before anyone was about. We feel his presence in the surrounding emptiness he has kept for the generations....Saville is his New York counterpart, the Atget of vanishing New York, prowling her city at the other end of the day, picking up pieces of the past in the present, just before it is swallowed by shadows..."
