nuit blanche 2014

Across the globe, flowers typically bloom in the warm sunlight brought by the Spring. But here in DC, art blooms in the fall under moonlit skies. In late September through October and November, the art world comes to life with festivals, fairs, conferences, major openings, and exhibitions. And the most expansive of these events–in terms of types of art, number of artists, number of locations, number of attendees–is Art All Night / Nuit Blanche DC. It is always atop my list of art events to attend, and I always bring my camera (some photos from 2013’s edition are in the blog post: looking back at nuit blanche 2013). This year I was excited not only to shoot Art All Night, but also to shoot for Art All Night.

The current featured gallery—Nuit Blanche DC—presents my picks from a much larger set of the photographs that I provided to the Art All Night team. For this gallery, I selected images with a loose focus toward the interaction between art and the artist or viewer.
