Michael Neff is an artist, photographer and printmaker living in Brooklyn, NY. Neff's work is a constant examination of the every day, asking the viewer to spend another moment to consider what they might otherwise pass by without a second glance.
For his ongoing series “The Night Shadow,” Neff outlines the contours of city shadows with chalk and then photographs the resulting drawings. While the original chalk drawings nod to the ephemerality of the shadows themselves, the photographs serve to document those temporary moments, both showcasing and preserving the play of light and shadow in the urban environment. The Night Shadow project includes imagery from cities and towns across the US and Canada.
