Bruce Wodder: Newark after Dark

Bruce Wodder: Newark after Dark

MonoVisions Black & White Photo Contest 2024

Every city has two personalities: one in daylight, another after dark. In this series of photographs I explore the nocturnal stillness of Newark, NJ, when the subtle shadows of darkness play out against the streets and buildings. Once daylight has disappeared and ambient light creates the city’s aura, a simple street is transformed with shades of gray. These eight black & white photos are inspired by film noir, where the nonexistence of light is the strongest element in the frame.
