Juan Alberto Barria... and more news

Juan Alberto Barria took this dramatic shot in Rosario, Argentina of the Rosario Victoria Bridge.

(Rosario de Noche, by Juan Alberto Barria)

Urban night photographs taken in fog often have an eery, noir look. I imagine the reason we don't see a lot of foggy night photographs is that few people want to be out shooting in that sort of weather. That's too bad, because it produces worthwhile photographs. One of the interesting aspects of this photograph is that it appears to have been taken from a boat in the water (it wasn't). Somehow, this makes it more intriguing to the viewer.

Other NPy News... I'm working on a review of Troy Paiva's second book Night Vision: The Art of Urban Exploration. I hope to post it by the end of the week.
