Night is a timespace which for some of us feels very uncomfortable, yet for many is very enticing. It veils the world with mystery and makes it a „different place“ where various things happen with which our mind likes to fill dark corners and indefinite spaces.

Paradoxically, darkness also amplifies light and the emotions it stirs up in us. This kind of eerie atmosphere often appears in contemporary art, including photography. Tomáš Teodosijev’s Triffid’s Age counts among works which combine this atmosphere with components of civilization – the author is specifically fascinated with the structures and surfaces of large billboards against the emptiness of night-time landscapes.
