About The Artwork

A cold, foggy morning in a forgotten village called Gold Hill in North Carolina. The tree, like the town which was, more than 100 years ago, a thriving center of gold mining in the Southeast. Cold, wet, a dark myst hung over the world around me. Inspired by wet plate photographs from the late 19th Century. Available on a variety of fine art papers, including Japanese handmade paper. Printed at 2400 DPI. This work is in a class we call "Aura." An Aura is created using NyghtFalcon-developed technology which renders up to 400% more detail in an image.

Biography of Falcon, Senior Partner I don’t see the world with my eyes. I see the world with my emotions. I am visually impaired. I suffer from a genetic/environmental disease that has atrophied my irises, and which has taken away my ability to see color, except in near darkness. Born in rural Connecticut at a time when truck farms stretched across the hills north of New Haven, I have lived a life more closely akin to Steinbeck’s Grapes of Wrath than to that of a modern person. The eldest of five, the son of an alcoholic, at seven I began what I have described as his “journey into hell,” a reference to the three years I spent working among migrants on a truck farm near the family home. Those brutal three years, framed by my own near-death experience on the farm, opened me to a side of human existence few ever see. The same year I went to work on the farm, I read Homer’s Iliad and Odyssey. Coupled with my experiences on the farm, these works have shaped my life. At ten I went to work in the labs at Yale, where I remained until I was sixteen. I would eventually earn a PhD in Biblical Theology from Emory University. I attended Yale and Fordham as well. In 1998, I was awarded a Computerworld-Smithsonian Medal for my accomplishments in information technology. I was nominated by Michael Dell. In 2002, my life-long struggle with anorexia brought me to the edge of death for the fourth time in six years. A few months earlier, I had bought my first camera - a digital camera. In January of 2003, JD Milazzo and I founded The House of NyghtFalcon. I had never worked with film. I didn’t just walk away from a corporate career in IT. I walked to my humanity. What makes us human, is not logic and reason. It is our emotional encounter with the world, what Heidegger called dwelling poetically. When we open ourselves emotionally to the world, we see the world again. For the first time. In 2018, I began using vintage lenses on my medium format camera to create still images that embody my emotional vision of the world. In 2019, I began using a vintage Pentax 6x7 film camera along with those lenses. That emotional encounter with the world is the genesis of the vibrant colors that often characterize both my work and the work of The House of NyghtFalcon. The firm has pioneered the creation of digital images that have the look of several dozen vintage films.
