“At night everything is different”

At the beginning of this book, it is disussed that modern society does not take into consideration the nocturnal world. The night is a empty, and silent, and beautiful, but people do not care about this urban landscape that totally changes between day and night.

His images in this book are, again, cropped, and focused on a certain part of the scene instead of the scene as a whole.

Hutte’s photographs evoke a sense of imaginary landscape. They are so abstract and confusing to the eye. The viewer cannot simply look at this image, they have to look ‘into’ it. Search for what is in the image and make sense of the photograph as a whole.
