Flares warming up night landscapes

What can you do with military-grade flares? In his Take Refuge series, LA-based photographer Kevin Cooley used these to illuminate the nighttime and often cold landscapes of wherever he travelled to for his other projects, and shot the long-exposure images with an analog 4×5 large format camera. They emit the same inviting glow regardless of which location he’s at. Consistency can be comforting.
