LUKE SHEPARD YOUTUBE VIMEO FACEBOOK TWITTER CONTACT

Nightvision is a celebration of the brilliance and diversity of architecture found across Europe. Over the course of three months I journeyed with a friend through 36 cities in 21 countries with the ambition of capturing some of the greatest European structures in a new and unique way. Comprised of thousands of carefully taken photographs, strung together and stabilized in post-production, Nightvision aims to inspire appreciation for these man-made landmarks.

 

Nightvision would not have been possible without my Kickstarter backers, the support of the American University of Paris community, everyone who helped along the way, and of course, those who designed and built these architectural masterpieces.

STILLS
MAP

This map highlights all 36 cities visited for the film. We used a 90 day Eurail Pass to travel around the continent. There are several incredible locations and structures that I would have liked to capture for NIGHTVISION, but I was unable to because of Eurail Pass restrictions, uncooperative weather, and limited budget / time. I shot more than 20,000 photos and was able to create 47 successful image sequences on the trip. 27 of these sequences are included in Nightvision. These locations are denoted by red pins.
