Night Fever: Film and Photography After Dark




Next month marks the launch of the book Night Fever: Film and Photography After Dark, edited by Shanay Jhaveri and published by Koenig Books. I’m thrilled to have my work featured in this exciting collection of art and essays, alongside Madeline Murphy Turner‘s wonderful text, ‘The Measure of the Moon’, which complements my Moonset series beautifully.



In Shanay’s own words: “Night Fever: Film and Photography After Dark is not an inventory of every work made in and about the night; nor is it a history of the night through art. Instead, it is committed to those lens-based practices that have found in the night the opportunity to rejoice and rebel, but also to seek rest, refuge and perhaps some revelation.”



Publisher’s synopsis:


The first significant publication of its kind, Night Fever is a lavishly illustrated compendium of artist portfolios and essays that consider the unique conditions of the nighttime world and its transgressive and transformational possibilities. The book comprises 20 photography portfolios by a diverse, international and intergenerational group of artists as well as 21 essays about films made during and about the night. Together, the films, photo portfolios and essays gathered in the volume testify to the fact that there is no single night; for each person, place or group, night's threshold, its liminal edge, is ever-changing.


Artists include: David Goldbatt, Dayanita Singh, Dhruv Malhotra, Evgenia Arbugaeva, Katsumi Watanabe, Kohei Yoshiyuki, Lieko Shiga, Malick Sidibé, Martina Mullaney, Ming Smith, Mosa'ab Elshamy, Myriam Boulos, Paz Errazuriz, Rinko Kawauchi, Sanlé Sory, Sohrab Hura, Stephen Barker, Suwon Lee, Tobias Zielony, Trevor Paglen.


Co-published with The Shoestring Publisher, Sweden. Edited by Shanay Jhaveri, Head of Visual Arts at the Barbican, London. Jhaveri was previously Associate Curator of International Art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
