Names of the Night comprises photographs taken on my night walks in Los Angeles and other places.

I love the night, the poetry of light and shade, of window and world...of the unfelt barriers of darkness which we pierce without touching. I walk under any weather, usually alone, sometimes with the camera. For my own pleasure, and nothing else: to see, to hear the voices and straying music and other sounds, to smell the perfumes of hidden cooking and invisible flowers...going someplace or going no place, I walk the night.

Though I began taking the camera on my night walks almost the first week I had a camera, these are images I have made since the year 2000.
