There is something magical about industrial neighborhoods---the long, empty blocks of warehouses, weeds sprouting here and there between the sidewalk cracks, hodge-podge fences created out of different metals. This poetic atmosphere becomes magnified at night, when the streetlights illuminate these seemingly innocuous structures. There is a peaceful solitude hard to find in other parts of the city streets. I made these pictures mostly between 2 and 6 a.m. to make the most of the deep bluish-purple sky and special atmosphere of time and place, and used long exposures (between 2 and 12 minutes) to emphasize the soft, secret movements of branches and weeds in the wind. These were all photographed by the South Brooklyn waterfront in New York.
