Thierry Cohen at Danziger Gallery



To live in a city means to live with light, especially at night. But what if it didn't? What if we could see the city and its night sky? As a result of an innovative project by photographer Thierry Cohen now showing at Danziger Gallery, we can. Cohen took multiple photos of a cityscape, then replaced the light pollution-filled sky with an image of the stars and galaxies taken in a less densely populated area along the same latitude. The results, “Villes Eteintes” (Darkened Cities), are mystifying and utterly spell-binding.

So glad that guy got a show here. Or maybe I only saw his stuff after he got a show here. Either way, totally gorgeous stuff, and I can't get enough of it. Although obviously I'm glad you can't see any stars here at night, because I'm scared of everything in the dark, especially Avenue C.
