Boston By Sunrise

Joe Barnard

Artist Statement:

The vision I had for “Boston By Sunrise” was originally part of a much larger picture. I had planned to make a series of short little vignettes like the sunrise video, showing the city by different times of day. I actually ended up shooting a significant amount of what would have become “Boston By Night” before I scrapped the idea. The thing is, most people can easily see the city at night time, which automatically makes it a lot less special. There’s something really incredible about those few minutes of sunrise at the beginning of the day (or the end of a lot of long nights in my case.) The idea was to capture those really cool moments that few people see, and create something interesting/beautiful with them.”
