Edward Fausty: Next Frontier

Next Frontier: the land and the night sky

In these photographs I am exploring my fascination with the night, and how the presence of stars transforms it; how the stars seem to imply a greater vastness of space, putting our planet and our lives into their proper context as very small parts of a very large unknown. We are a small island in a great sea.

Night has always been a challenge to photographers, but now the digital sensor allows the camera to see into the deepest obscurities and illuminated areas in a way that feels true. Stars pop out of the darkness in their varying colors, moonlight fills the night with the bluish tint of skylight, while light from homes and streets creates it’s own familiar ambience.

In the past, it was only the skilled painter who could render in this way. Now, in addition to the control digital processing offers, digital pigment printing has, for me, strengthened the bridge of ink between disparate art disciplines.

The prints, 25"x34", are on Moab Entrada natural paper with a smooth eggshell finish. Edition size is 7.  There are more than 30 images in the series.
