Night Lines

Completed during a 1997-98 Artist in Bioregional Residency program in Northern California, Night Lines is a series of nocturnal landscape photographs informed by dynamic light trails. Made using traditional methods (long exposures) and simple tools (a variety of flashlights), the lines are drawn in response to features of the landscape. As the manipulator of the light, the artist himself becomes a primary component of the photographs–albeit an invisible one–as the images document Allen’s interaction with nature and the earth’s topography.
