Lance Keimig

Lance Keimig, along with Tim Baskerville, was one of my original night photography instructors four years ago. Lance is a great black-and-white printer, and has a wonderful eye for composition and dark, moody images. He regularly shoots in Ireland and Scotland, but some of his best work was done around the old textile mills in Lowell and Lawrence, Massachusetts. The image below is from his mill series.

While Boston was busy undergoing a massive project to move the inner-city elevated freeway underground (the “Big Dig”), Lance was one of the few photographers brave enough to face the cold, Boston winters and photograph the construction project at night. More of his Big Dig night photographs can be seen here.

Lance is currently teaching night photography workshops at the New England School of Photography (NESOP). You can also hear Lance talk about his work in my (here comes the shameless plug…) night photography documentary film.
