Parisan digital photography pioneer, Theirry Cohen, enlightens our eyes to the growing problem of light pollution in urban areas in his series “Darkened Cities”. Using his digital photography genius, he shows us what we are missing out on in the cities by giving the stars back to their landscape. Cohen meticulously matches up the sky to the city, taking both pictures at the same latitude before combining them. Clever and masterful.
