A new body of work exploring the mystery and elusiveness of nightscapes. In this series, Kander imbues empty spaces with textures and colours resulting from the play of artificial light, film, and time. He traces the paths of electric light against backdrops of blackness to create abstract photographic etchings of human activity. In each of the photographs, only traces of human activity are visible while the subjects remain invisible. The ingenuity of human invention, whether in the form of electric lights, airplanes, or ocean liners in motion, seems fragile and temporal against the primal backdrops of fields, sea, and sky.
