Dave Jordano has been making pictures for nearly fifty years. After a long and successful commercial photography career, he began making personal work in 2000. Since then Jordano has produced several long-term documentary projects, all of them focused on the Midwest. His first book about Detroit, Detroit: Unbroken Down, was published in 2016. That work documented the lives of the city’s struggling residents and his new project, Detroit Nocturne, looks at the places in which they live and work. These are nighttime landscapes that blend a documentary realism with a lyrical beauty. Detroit Nocturne was published by powerHouse Books in 2018. Jordano is currently producing a series of night photographs in the Chicago area.
