Don't Take Pictures strives to showcase the work of emerging photographers. In addition to publishing photography in print, and online in our monthly columns, we also publish quarterly online exhibitions.

Between the last light of day and the first rays of dawn, the world as we normally see it transforms to one in which nightclubs, all-night stores, third shift workers, and nocturnal wildlife take center stage. Spaces abuzz with activity during the day become quiet and desolate, and artificial light transforms mundane spaces into something almost magical. Photographers who work at night experience a nocturnal world that most sleep through.

The perception of night is different for each photographer. For some, the darkness can present a time for reflection and repose, for others, the feat of the unknown instills feelings of anxiety and uncertainty within them. For this online exhibition, Don't Take Pictures seeks photographs that explore the night.

The exhibition will be published on Don't Take Pictures Online from February 24 - May 25.
