Pulling from archived astrophotography and nightscapes, photographer and filmmaker Arthur Cauty created Night Light, a film composed of still images and time-lapsed star trails. Each subject is made of three and five exposures, but with different lighting in each photograph, then blended together or transitioned in between to give the effect of seamless motion. This film was inspired by the pandemic shutdown as a means to remember and share the wonders of the night sky from solitary confines.
