Here's Palm Springs In All Its Nighttime Glory

Here's Palm Springs In All Its Nighttime Glory

Inspiration can strike anywhere, at any time.

So when renowned photographer Tom Blachford found himself in Palm Springs, lit by twilight, a vision for a new photo series dawned on him. Why not combine classic cars, architecture, mountains, and darkness to help stir a compelling scene?

The result is called Midnight Modern, a series initially shot covertly but one that’s now well-known and embraced within the Palm Springs community. It’s not as simple as it looks, of course: it took Blachford three years in order to capture each setting at its best, with some benefitting from a well-placed classic car.

Here, you’re able to see the Kaufmann Residence, Frank Sinatra Twin Palms, and the Frey II house, among others, in an intimate look at a side of Palm Springs that only really longtime residents get to enjoy. If you’re not lucky enough to actually live there, Blachford will at least ship you a print.
