Mike Cooper bought a DSLR camera in the late 1990s and started taking vacation photos. After seeing long-exposure night photos of abandoned sites along old Route 66, he started doing research, and his first official night photography session occurred on a family vacation on New Year’s Eve in 2009. In the years since then, he has traversed the country searching for abandoned locations and photographing those same locations in the dark. His pictures have been included in juried expositions in Tennessee, Texas, and Louisiana, and his extensive portfolio can be seen on Flickr and Instagram under his “Nocturnal Kansas” handle.
