By Night in LA

17 August - 14 September 2013

In the series By Night in LA, Vergara returned to the familiar structures he photographed during the day. The buildings take on new character and significance when daylight’s brightness gives way to darkness. Vergara writes, “it was not the stars that illuminated the LA night, it was electric lights. Contrasting with the day view, light at night often came from the buildings themselves…fences and spikes illuminated from behind and alleys lit with patches of yellow tungsten, white fluorescent, and neon lights.”
