Tom Blachford's now renowned Midnight Modern series, first launched at Modern Times, is now a beautiful coffee table book, published by powerHouse, NYC.
Midnight Modern brings into focus a view of Palm Springs and it's famous modernist architecture shot entirely by the light of the full moon.
Working closely with the Palm Springs community, Blachford gained remarkable access to some of the most coveted architectural jewels in the area, including the Kaufmann Desert House, Edris House, Frey House II, Frank Sinatra Twin Palms Estate, and dozens of restored Alexander Tract homes in the valley.
Blachford’s work builds on the famous documentary and lifestyle approaches of Slim Aarons and Julius Shulman, but injects a signature mystery. His cinematic aesthetic acts as a stage for an untold narrative, inviting the viewer to script their own drama going on behind the walls of these historic homes. This original, lush work is a rich contribution to the record for those mid-century architecture and design lovers fascinated by Palm Springs.
