Magical nighttime photos by Ben Canales

‘I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream’, says Van Gogh via the banner on Ben Canales’s starry-eyed website. Canales, a photographer out of Portland, takes photos at night of magical, epic proportions. If it seems a little Peter Pan-esque, it is. Canales is moved by those summer nights of youth, when the stars canopied campfires, beaches, lakes and backyards.
