A glimpse into the imagination of photographer and University of Portsmouth graduate, Diana Goss.
Diana has a passion for expressing light in creative ways at night demonstrated by this magnificent and inspiring flickr set…
Lucky enough to grow up in a family of photographers her early years were spent rocking developer trays, holding the hose into the developer tank and hanging out dripping wet images in a little green caravan by the side of the house!
Her father would often disappear for days on end in this quirky little darkroom. From those early days watching the light and shadows develop before her, Diana was hooked on the mystery and subtlety of the interplay of light and exposures.
She adores the challenge of night photography. Obtaining light out of the darkness just thrills her. The still of the night holds an ambience for Diana unlike any other time for shooting.
In the night time she becomes aware of the universality of everything, the palpability of earths rotation. The interplay of light, dark, time and circumstance can amount to much uncertainty.
However using her internal creative vision amounts to a pay off for such mysterious unknowings resulting in peace, freedom and initiation into the secrets of the night.
When others sleep I find a restless desire to explore the endless possibilities hidden in the dark.
“For my part I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream.” Van Gogh.
