This collection of movie film has been shot by Simon Carroll over many years. Much of the footage was created using available light of stars and moonlight.
Inspired by a long standing interest in astronomy and the wonder of the starry night he began gas hyper-sensitiising motion picture film to enhance its sensitivity - star light being a million times fainter than sunlight.
The time lapse approach used for night photography more easily records the drama of sun-lit phenomena. Landscapes and skies by night and day are the subject of 14 hours of time lapse pictures in the Archive.
