The world is a different place after dark, and this magnificent photography book illuminates the mesmerizing realm of all things nocturnal. After dark, the light is different; there is an unspoken intimacy; new and different activities occur and in the natural world, an unseen universe comes alive. Page after page of vivid photos explore the many nuances of night vision--from the sea by moonlight to night markets in Laos to the face of a child lit up by a screen in a darkened room. The range of images is breathtaking: A smoky jazz club. Flowers that bloom only at night. Phosphorescent fish. Lions photographed with infrared cameras. TheEiffel Tower, all lit up. Faces around a campfire. A stadium lit by floodlights. Earth from space. Elegant, sexy, and a little mysterious, this richly illustrated book is a stunning pathway to some of the world's most captivating sights.
