This body of work captures the in-between state of the suburban landscape after the street lights turn on and the shops switch off their open signs. Due to obligations with work and school my only free time is during the darkest parts of the day. These lonely nights spent studying, traveling between commitments, and trying to find my headspace have fostered a sense of comfort within the suburban nightscape. The buildings shown evoke a sense of the “little-suburban-hometown” as I travel and explore the dimly lit vacant spaces which held activity just moments ago. The darkened storefronts, and empty streets speak to the American Dream of putting in a good day's work before heading home where the white picket fences and 2.5 children can be found. The hours which the shops are open, and how they illuminate themselves during the night hours, when people are traveling home, speak to the current state of small town commerce. The vast dark space that surrounds these recently bustling buildings is the negative space in which my mind metaphorically thrives.
