New images quantify a nocturnal pollutant
Ansel Adams once called his photography of the nation's parklands a "blazing poetry of the real." If scientific data were verse, that description would also fit Chad Moore's pictures. Taken in dozens of national parks, mostly in the western United States, Moore's images emphasize contrast, horizon, and sky. But they aren't imitations of Adams' art. In the name of science, Moore photographs the darkness, but his subject may be in peril.
