Cuyama Car Garden: Junkyard Photos by Troy Paiva

Published Jul 8, 2019

American photographer Troy Paiva travels around the southwest looking for abandoned locations to capture his amazing light painted photographs.

“I only shoot at night, by the light of the full moon, using minutes-long exposures to capture the palpable passage of time onto a single frame. I augment the scene with hand-held light–frequently colored–during the exposure, treating the site like a dark stage set, using theatrical and cinematic techniques to manage the composition, create mood, and lead the viewer’s eye. It’s about tightly controlling the scene, even though the scene itself is wildly entropic and out of control.”
