Carnival Nights

photograph, 2014, 24"w x 16"h

Growing up in the Midwest has certain hallmarks, and one of the memories that I hold on to from the ’90s is of the carnivals that came through town. To me, the biggest parts of that memory are the bright neon lights and the swirling movements in the dark summer night. I sought to capture that by working with long exposures in this piece in order to evoke the motion of the rides against the lone standing figure.
