Australian photographer Tom Blachford presents the latest instalment of his series of modernist architecture photography Midnight Modern, a body of work that captures iconic Palm Springs mid-century residences in the chilling light of a full moon. Used to seeing these modernist landmarks in the harsh light of the desert sun, we are mesmerised by Blachford’s nocturnal images and their mysterious atmosphere reminiscent of a classic American film noir setting. T

he photographer was granted unprecedented access to modernist masterpieces like the Menrad Residence and the recently restored Kaufmann House, which in turn allowed him to play with interior lighting and even include period automobiles in some of the shots.
