While getting through my hard drives a couple of weeks ago I stumbled upon a folder of unedited images I shot in the French Riviera at the end of 2010. I clearly remember what pushed me to take my (then) favorite camera and tripod, get into three awfully cold nights (for that latitude) and try to shoot some no-nonsense pictures. I just got struck by Jeffrey Goggin's compelling night photographs and, although not being particularly interested in sun-less imaging until then, I wanted to test my skills and see if I could start a new unexpected chapter in my photography. As PhotoGraphia regulars can easily tell, that was destined to remain an unrepeated experience instead. Nonetheless it left something in the way I see and try to depict the urban landscape, something that has become more visible in the last six months, I believe. And, above all, the profitable attendance at Jeffrey's blog, along with his appreciation and friendship. Jeffrey recently decided to temporarily pause his blog. Still I warmly recommend everybody to pay it a long and thorough visit. You will be amazed by the way he masters his framing, composition and grayscale: shortly, a great lesson of photography.
