There is something so intriguing about non-descript night time shots of people, places and things during an adventure outing. Maybe it’s because it stirs up raw, almost adolescent emotions that make you want to recapture your youth; or perhaps it makes you pause and think of your own foolishly awesome adventures. Either way, Trinh Huynh’s series of photographs seem like quiet reflections of amazing escapades.
Questing or adventures stories don’t necessarily have to be grand in scope. Though these pictures out of series probably mean not a whole lot to us, they do provide a the slightest invitation into the world Huynh is so well versed; the inside-joke kind of realm that only select people are privy to because it was experienced these things with them. These seem to be flashes or memories that mean a whole lot to someone else but are just pieces of a story to us. To the people in the pictures, Huynh, they are the catalyst for all the other memories associated with it and moments that make living amazing. If anything, these pictures are apparitions of quests that we may have had on our own or with wonderful people. They are symbols for the carefree attitudes we ought to have.
And in this picture of daybreak, sun shining through the window, the night is not over forever. The day time is just there for you to plot out what or where your will be when the sun goes down again.
