Container #1

German photographer Jakob Wagner turns his lens to urban and industrial scenes at night in his collections “Nightscapes,” “Container,” and “Middle East,” to name a few. In his night photography, Wagner favors waterside settings hazily illuminated by all the lighting a city has to offer. Somewhat distanced from the subjects, he shows the variety of a city’s architecture, the precise order of container crates on a barge, and the place where a metropolis meets the mountainside. The sweeping images draw the viewer deeper and deeper into the off-hours, so they can view often-overlooked sights in a mysterious new way.
