Historical Context:
"When I take the time to photograph, nothing else matters. I want the viewers of my work to feel the same sense of tranquility when seeing my images. Something about the landscapes called me to photograph their beauty at night. My images suggest that more excitement lingers in the darkness and create an eerie composition that is almost sublime. While many find that evil lurks in the shadows of the night, psychic Edgar Cayce believed that evil thoughts are actually material things manifested by us. In other words, by believing in raw evil you can actually create it." -Sarah DeBol
