Kurzbeschreibung

11. November 2012
Noel Kerns is a Texas-based photographer who specializes in capturing ghost towns, decommissioned military bases, and industrial abandonments by night. His images incorporate two distinct photographic techniques: time-exposure by the natural light of a full moon, and the artful application of artificial light, vividly "painted" into the scene while the camera's shutter is open. "Light-painting is all about vision, " says Kerns. "Or more accurately, 'pre-vision.' It's the ability to imagine the scene you want to emerge from the darkness, and then to execute it in such a way as to match or surpass what you imagined." NIGHTWATCH: PAINTING WITH LIGHT is the first book from Kerns, one of the world's foremost practitioners of the art of light-painting. Join him as he ventures into the darkness of the American Southwest, exploring remote desert ghost towns under a full moon, or prowling the abandoned, seemingly post-apocalyptic structures of America's industrial wastelands.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The night seen 14. Februar 2014
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
An impressive book of night photos revealing abandoned structures that litter the American landscape and following in the footsteps of the master of the genre: Troy Paiva. Though Paiva tends to concentrate on his night painting format Kerns offers a broader view in many of the photos here by using the light of a full moon. Probably more than half the photos use colour from gels placed in front of flashlights and strobes. Sometimes, I thought, this tends to be a hit or miss with a coloured light creating a rather artificial feel but other times, used rather subtlety, it creates quite stunning photos.

The range of places and things captured by Kerns is wonderfully comprehensive. The usual abandoned gas stations on the Interstate and of course the ruins of Detroit but also rusting dead tech, factories, motels, churches, aircraft, military installations and one photo of three train coaches with most of its windows missing.

Like Paiva's 2008 book 'Night vision' this book has captions for all the photos (location and date) but also frequently a few words from Kern's about the place in the photo and what he felt about it. It's not fashionable these days, in art photo books, for photographers to add any text thinking that the photos say it all but reading Kern's comments certainly give his work a lift in my view.

There are no page numbers so I can't say exactly how many photos there are but at least 250 which makes this a value for money title. The book is a handy square format with the photos printed with a 175 screen on a reasonable semi-matt art paper.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Spectacular, Surreal Images 8. Oktober 2013
Von dkammer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I had seen Noel Kerns' work on the Internet before this book was published so I was excited to get my copy! When I received it...I was really happy with the print and binding quality; it's very well bound and printed on high quality paper...it's heavy!

Not enough can be said about the images in this book...they are beautiful, surreal, and very well composed; but it is more than just a picture book! Mr. Kerns gives some background on almost every image...some serious, some funny, and always interesting. This is the quintessential "coffee table" book as you can pick it up, turn to any page and be instantly enthralled by the picture and the story behind it. If you appreciate great photography, or have a taste for bygone Americana...this is a very good choice.

Enjoy!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Jaw-Dropping 8. Oktober 2013
Von Bill Barol - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Noel Kerns is a friend, but before we were friends I was a fan. It's how we first connected: I read something about his photography on the Web, got in touch and asked if he'd sell me some prints. They're still hanging in my house, because I'm still, and always will be, crazy about his spooky, immaculately-composed, gorgeously-lit photographs of American ruins. Kerns manages to make you see in a wholly new way structures that you might not notice at all as you whoosh past them on the interstates. His pictures, even of the most derelict buildings, pulse with life. He has a fantastic eye and the soul of a musician (which he also is). Interesting guy, and an absolutely stunning photographer.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Amazing book 28. Oktober 2013
Von Maurice B. Clark - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I purchased this book about three weeks ago and do not regret my purchase one bit. There is a beautiful sadness in a lot of these pictures of buildings and homes that have lost their purpose in society. The thing that makes this book stand out against others like it, to me, is that Noel gives a brief history of the building in question and the surrounding atmosphere. The Baker Hotel is one of my favorites that he shot within this book as he mentions some of the celebrities that slept at this hotel back when it was a beautiful hotel. He also explains how it eventually was neglected and has a history of being haunted. Viewing the photo of the ballroom, one can almost imagine what the building was like with its fancy parties only to witness what 30+ years of neglect and abuse have done to it.

Reading some of the captions to his photos sort of allows me to be on an adventure of discovery with Noel. Whether it be through rattlesnake country at 3 in the morning or photographing a place with a crashing sound somewhere within the attic, I can understand why Noel goes on these crazy adventures. His lighting technique is also quite interesting as it allows him to place emphasis on certain areas of the building.

When I purchased this book, my wife and daughter were very curious to see what the book was like. They both have read it cover to cover and have both really enjoyed the book. I only wish Noel could put out another one but I know that it will not happen anytime soon. The book that I have is quite thick and has several years worth of work. If you want to see some of the photos or are unsure of a purchase, he has a website [...] that has some samples of his collection including my favorite, the Baker Hotel.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Awesome Book - Coffee Table or otherwise 28. Oktober 2013
Von C. Pick - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Noel Kerns spent several years rolling around the back (and some well traveled) country of the United States, and taking photos of mostly abandoned buildings, lit up in real time (not in post production), to give an eery look. Noel takes the time to give some additional personality to each picture by writing a small paragraph on each one, to tell us a bit about the history/shot.

I could go on and on about the pics, but if you like his flickr page, you will love this book.

I have a Noel Kerns print hanging on my wall, and right under it, is this book. Great addition to my collection.

Chris.

The book is a handy square format with the photos printed with a 175 screen on a reasonable semi-matt art paper. The whole book is black which unfortunately can show up finger marks easily and I found a slight annoyance with the text, because it isn't a ragged right setting there are lots of uneven spaces between the words (OK, a minor point but as a designer I notice these things). Overall though a fascinating collection of night photos and virtually every one pulls you into the composition, no also rans here.
