Blachford’s long-exposure Midnight Modern shots depict mid-20th-century houses in Palm Springs – including the Menrad Residence by William Krisel and Richard Neutra’s Kaufmann House – after their residents have gone to bed…
…”Palm Springs has been seen in a huge amount of imagery, but almost always during the bright sunshine,” said the photographer. “My hope for the series was to create a cinematic aesthetic for the homes to be viewed not just as buildings, but structures that have been the sets for countless scenes and stories.”
Tom Blachford’s photography has a way of connecting the familiar with the surreal, rendering functional, man-made structures into a strange and beautiful dream. Based in Melbourne, Australia his fascination with texture and shape, both contributing factors to the graphic style and considered composition of his work, made for a natural transition into the world of architectural photography.
