The darkness captured in the After Lights Out photo series is more stifling than quiet, oppressive than liberating and suspenseful than serene. The shadows and silhouettes of urban buildings are barely discernible against the nighttime sky. Only the single, sporadic light present in each of the images hint at any life. The series really captures the mood of the witching hour and those awake to appreciate it.
The After Lights Out photo series was shot by French photographer Julien Mauve. Known for his whimsical themes including Hopeless Romantic and Back to Childhood, this series fits into his existing body of work perfectly. Slightly haunting, the images will encourage people to appreciate light amidst such darkness like never before.
