Adam Shurte, Mechanicsville VA Member Since February 2012 Artist Statement I am a writer and photographer from the Richmond VA area; most of my photography is of urban areas at nighttime, and wilderness areas during the day. Artificial light at night has a haunting beauty, and as for wilderness regions and wildlife, nature is raw and untamed, and exists in sharp contrast to the infrastructure of modern society. It's a bit of an irony that I find both the natural world and the artificial world-everything lit up from an industrial factory after dark to a streetlamp-to be fitting subjects.
Both types of photography require a degree of isolation; at night, fewer people are about, and the further you stray from more densely civilized areas, the fewer people you run into. So far I've attempted to leave people out of my photos intentionally.
