“After Lights Out” by Julien Mauve

I love to see the night in photography, when the most of the people is sleeping and something special is happening outside our safe and quiet rooms. In his project After Lights Out, visual artist and french photographer Julien Mauve tell us what happen when all lights are off, except one: “Night no longer exists”, he says, “City lights cover up the stars, and cell phone screens lighten even the darkest of alleyways. And soon, imagine a world in which our lights render even the sun gratuitous. In the darkness of space, light is a beacon of hope. What if darkness in our world once again overtook the night and as an affect, transforming even the most insignificant light into an exception – a mystical phenomenon ? In a world in black and blue, the single incandescence of a bulb could be the greatest promise of an adventure about to start”.
