Historical Context:
This photograph is from a series of work by Connor Gray that depicts a unique combination of day to night landscapes. As the sun sets behind the sailboat, the stars have already started to peak out in the night sky. Gray creates these images by photographing the landscape during the day and then manipulates the original photograph to add the night sky. He would often spend hours on location as the sky would change colors as the sun began to set. Pertaining to his photographs Gray states, “The idea for this series came from what initially inspired me to pursue photography: high dynamic range images created from multiple captures. I was pursuing digital cinema at the time I began to discover these images, and I was fascinated by how they could show movement and capture an entire time-lapse in one photograph. With my work, I aimed to emulate from exploring those ideas and create images that showed the passage of time within beautiful places." - Connor Gray The idea for this series came from what initially inspired me to pursue photography: high dynamic range images created from multiple captures.
