Title: Night Stage

About the Photo:
This series is about an unusual way of seeing nature at night illuminated by the stars and artificial light. Used in a clever way, artificial light intervenes the landscape and makes it feel like a stage, like a theatrical place where a million years play is performed by nature. The images were taken at the Chilean Pacific Coast where there are still places free of light pollution, and where both celestial and ocean waters meet each other. Chile has particularly clear skies, and in some years it is expected that most of the astronomical observation facilities will be located there. This series helps us realize how important it is to preserve our most beautiful dark nights.
