Dark Discoveries

by Syd Briscoe

Leica: “Like the Night” - 2 mins 18s

This moody offering for Leica cameras sets Lord Byron's 'She Walks in Beauty' in a new and thoroughly modern context. We hear the narrator lean into a rhythmic, almost robotic tone as shadowy visuals explore the world at night, following female photographers and their cameras into the dark depths of both urban and rural landscapes.

From shady backstreet dealings to subterranean subway brawls and animals forging their own paths in the wilderness, this is a compelling look at what can be seen in the the dark when artists and documentarians step outside their comfort zone. Artsy and atmospheric, it should inspire those with a photographic bent (or a carrot addiction) to look at their environment with fresh eyes.
