Lynn Saville photographs New York at the time of transition from day to night, the brief moments when natural light gives way to streetlight, moonlight, window light and advertisement and surveillance lighting. Subdued tones and shadows reveal patterns and shapes that are hidden in the glare of daylight. Saville seeks out enigmatic places and images - deserted factories, back alleys, the shadowy infrastructure of urban highways and bridges that create the New York's exoskeleton. Unpopulated and sometimes unsettling, the photographs of Night/Shift offer unique, ephemeral glimpses of the city.
