I remember being in grade school and making one of the pinhole cameras out of cardboard and tape. I also remember developing the pictures and feeling like they looked a little strange like they weren't actually taken in the real world. That is kind of like what looking at these exquisite photographs taken by Rafael Y. Herman is like.
Despite how they look, almost blindingly bright, these photographs were taken in complete darkness, without manipulation of any kind. He uses nocturnal photography "to gain access to reality in a new way."
Take a look!
