For about two years, Paul Thompson has taken numerous shots of landscapes and seascapes. His ‘Moonlight’ series is truly pushing the boundaries of night photography. The remarkable collection of long exposure photographs includes picturesque sceneries where light, clouds, and water seemingly melt together. Over the process of a two hour exposure, clouds and tide can change dramatically, which allows him to document the interaction of time and movement. All pictures of the series were shot with a large-format film camera. Which means, each scene only gets one chance. The photographer can hardly see anything and most settings are based on instinct and fundamentally. Paul Thompson is fascinated by the simple creation of a unique picture, which is unable to be repeated.
