Photographer Poppy Matthews provides a visual exploration of public green spaces, when the night has descended, and nobody is about.
In the Dead of Night is a visual exploration of public green spaces at night. Public green spaces are areas of undeveloped land that are designed to make a positive visual and environmental contribution to towns, as well as help us stay physically and mentally well. They are a crucial part of urban life. They enhance the beauty and environmental quality of our neighbourhoods, and they’re most often used during the day.
The photographs in this series are taken at night, looking out to the surroundings of the spaces when there are no people present. The project aims to highlight how these spaces change from the daytime into something else entirely, once darkness falls over our townscape.
