Insomniac Photographer Michael Massaia’s Haunting Images Of Central Park

Published on May 23, 2017

New Jersey-based photographer Michael Massaia, who suffers from insomnia, began taking long walks to pass the night away and developed a talent for photography. In 2009 he created a photo series called “Deep in a Dream, Central Park.” 

For the project, he used only black and white film and the park’s natural light at dawn.

His prints are created using a highly toxic developer called Pyro. The results are mysterious, black and white photographs with rich tonal scales that magically capture Central Park in a way few have seen it.
