The Alleys and Ruins series by Chicago-based photographer Xavier Nuez might be my favorite series of photographs. I’m a huge fan of long-exposure photography, and I love how Nuez’s photographs are dark and colorful at the same time. Nuez ventures out to high-risk locations to capture these amazing images, and he’s faced many dangerous encounters in the process. I was lucky enough to be able to purchase a print of my favorite image in the series, the lead image in this post, when Nuez was at Artisphere in Greenville, SC.
