Adam Katseff’s Night Landscapes use darkness to limit the visual field, inviting the viewer to compose the remainder of each image. Whether the site depicted is historic or less known each scene offers a sense of familiarity, blurring the line between image, memory and imagination. Rich detail slowly emerges from each image as our eyes adjust to the dark, and the slight glow of the horizon, a faint shimmer off the water, the hard edge of a tree branch, resolve to reward the patience of the viewer.
