Raymundo Torres presents Troy Paiva

''Troy Paiva, AKA Lost America, has been creating light painted night photography in abandoned locations and junkyards since 1989. His documentarian, yet surrealist, sometimes playful, sometimes haunting work examines the evolution and eventual abandonment of the communities, infrastructure and social iconography spawned during America’s 20th century expansion into the cities and deserts of the West–and the intensely exhillerating, yet strangely comforting act of sneaking around in the middle of the night, creating art from its ruins.''
Another night photographer, and he shares his secrets with us, yay!
He uses long exposures and flash lights to create a mood in total darkness.
