Our latest photographic book
Photographed entirely at night, The Night Watchers takes the reader on a spectacular journey that explores both urban and rural landscapes.
Whether shrouded in darkness, aglow in moonlight, under star-filled skies, studded by the Milky Way, streaked with the Aurora Australis, or illuminated by man-made night lights, these night recording photographs present striking vistas that are simultaneously familiar and strange.
