“When one seeks photographs of lighthouses there are usually hundreds if not thousands to choose from of almost every one in the country. Most, if not all are daytime images. Seldom do you find photographs of lighthouses from when they did their most important work—at night. With the advent of more sensitive image sensors developed over the past several years, newer cameras now allow for the emerging genre of nighttime photography.
This project has taken on a life of its own and from the reactions I get from most observers of my work, I believe a new and greater appreciation of lighthouses and nighttime photography has emerged. It is at times difficult work and the motivation is to capture as many operating lighthouses we have left before we lose too many more.”
