Noel Kerns

Dallas-based photographer Noel Kerns specializes in capturing Texas’ ghost towns, decommissioned military installations, and industrial abandonments at night. Relatively new in night photography circles, Noel’s background in the large-format, black & white photographic process was a perfect launching pad into the art of photographing the nocturnal world.

“One of the things I enjoy most about photographing under a full moon are all the latent details, those things which reveal themselves to you only when you take the time to let the moonlight tell the story. Similarly, light-painting is an exercise in patience and control, imagination and experimentation, carefully managing each detail so that the final result matches or surpasses the image you envisioned before the shutter was ever opened.”
