Greta & Manu Schnetzler Photography

Neighborhood: Potrero Hill
Group Affiliation: Studio Nocturne

We have had a longstanding interest in night photography as reflected in the variety of subject matter and places depicted in our work. We see our night work as a good example of the continuing desire to explore our environment, to see common sights in a different way and to capture images that reveal the mystery of the everyday. We are struck by the transformative power of night lighting (whether moonlight or artificial) to create beauty and feeling in urban settings.

We have an attraction to what has been left behind to be destroyed, to decay, or just to wait to be reanimated by human presence. Although our work is not documentary, we see our urban landscape transforming so quickly that we often feel a sense of urgency to photograph the scenes that we are drawn to before they fall to the steady march of progress.
