Nocturnal is Wendy Bowman’s investigation into the life that sparks as the sun sets and the city goes digital. Bowman’s photographs confront the layers of perception through a synthesis of the natural and artificial. The subjects in her photographs are often isolated — their essences both accented and undercut by their context. Her subjects are caught at night illuminated only by the synthetic light of the city. The fragmented composition and vivid color in her photographs evoke intrigue with everyday artifacts and people that would otherwise be overlooked as ordinary.
