Lynn Saville: Dark City
Arthur Danto has described Lynn Saville as New York's answer to Eugène Atget, because she "prowls her city at the other end of the day, picking up pieces of the past in the present, just before it is swallowed by shadows."

Color and light come from the sky, streetlights, neon signs or surveillance lighting.

Saville studied at the Pratt Institute and Duke University and is represented by Yancey Richardson in New York.
