Travelling across eight different locations, from urban San Jose in California to a desolate stretch of Death Valley, Lost in Light explores the ubiquitous but often overlooked phenomenon of light pollution. As artificial light brightens the night sky, we increasingly lose our view of the stars, planets and constellations, as well as the sense that we’re part of a larger galaxy. Showing eight different ‘levels’ of light pollution throughout California and Oregon, Sriram Murali uses timelapse to dramatic effect, asking what else we lose when we can’t see the stars.
