During my various blogspeditions, I continued to see Juliane Eirich's name . Juliane splits her time between the United States and Germany, and has shown work all over the world, including Syria, Tunisia, France and Germany. Juliane seems to be most recognized for her night work, which is outstanding. Though I typically don't try to speculate on this blog about technique, it look as though Juliane throws light on some of the subjects in her work. However, unlike so many other night photographers, (this is based on the assumption that she does use artificial light), Juliane seems to use light at night in a way that brings out the great aspects of what is already there, rather than throwing out a gelled strobe that always seems to fictionalize the picture. I particularly liked her Schools series, which includes pictures of elementary schools in Oahu, Hawaii at night. Juliane has just recently won second place in the Camera Club of New York's 2010 national juried competition, as has also been featured in the debut issue of the online zine Over/Under. On a side note, Over/Under's first issue was titled "Night Moves", and has an eclectic collection of night photography that's definitely worth checking out. Here are a couple of Juliane's images.
