From Library Journal:

Minnesotan photographer Faust, whose work has been exhibited frequently, has been capturing nocturnal urban landscapes for more than 15 years. His first published book features 73 black-and-white plates taken primarily in the Midwest between 1988 and 2005. The images are crisp, clean night views of gas stations, industrial landscapes, stores, bridges, factories, and parking lots. They are devoid of people, allowing the viewer to appreciate cityscapes often ignored in the rush and blur of daylight activity. Following art historian John Rothfuss's opening essay, which allows readers a peek into Faust's world, each page is devoted to a single image. Brief author commentary on each image appears in the final pages, and while it adds detail to the photographs, they can be fully appreciated without it. Recommended for public and academic libraries with larger contemporary photography collections.-Valerie Nye, Coll. of Santa Fe, NM (c) Copyright 2010.
