Troy Paiva is one of my favorite photographers of late. I love his choice of subjects – googie architecture, abandoned buildings, junk yards and the southwest desert. He shoots almost exclusively at night and uses a combination of colored flashes and LED lights to “paint” his subjects.
Troy published his first book of night-time photography, Lost America: The Abandoned Roadside West in 2003. His newest book,
Night Vision: The Art of Urban Exploration continues his explorations into abandoned scenery, night time photography, surreal coloring, and imaginative vision.
I found a full review on Epic Edits, a new (to me) photo blog.
More of Troy’s work is available on his Flickr page.
