We’ve long been fans of LA-based photographer Darren Pearson (previously) who heads out at night to create site-specific light sculptures using long-exposure photography. He mostly uses a device of his own creation called a Night Writer to illustrate almost all of the creatures you see here, from rainbow-hued dinosaurs swimming across lakes to his popular skeletons that were incorporated into a music video. You can follow his work day-to-day on Instagram.
