Tom Blachford – Midnight Modern

Australian photographer Tom Blachford has captured a truely unique perspective of Palm Springs and their modern architecture.

By only capturing images by the light of a full moon these images have a special, almost cinematic feeling. The crisp moonlight adds a new dimension to the famous mecca of desert modernism and shows a contrasting side of a town famous for its sunshine, cocktails, and hedonism.

Working closely with the Palm Springs community, Blachford gained remarkable access to some of the most coveted architectural jewels in the area, including the Kaufmann Desert House, Edris House, Frey House II, Frank Sinatra Twin Palms House, and dozens of restored Alexander tract homes in the valley.

To launch the exhibition, which took Blachford three years to capture and compile, Black Eye Gallery will be hosting Tom for a one off book signing where you can pick yourself up a special treat that will be an instant conversation starting coffee table book.

Until Apr 30 (Book signing Apr 20, 6-8pm). Black Eye Gallery, 3/138 Darlinghurst Rd, Darlinghurst. Info:
