Darren Almond's work often takes him to remote parts of the globe, following conceptual threads that encompass geography, politics, history and his own biography. This catalogue presents his Fullmoon photographs, incorporating new images and key earlier images from around the British Isles. Almond has been making his Fullmoon photographs since 1998, when a chance encounter led him to start practicing night photography, using moonlight and an extremely long exposure. The result is an ongoing series of landscape photographs that are bathed in an eerie brightness, seemingly transforming night into day. Always unpopulated, his landscapes suggest the possibility of another existence, a dead-of-night world without the seething masses of humanity.
