Sodium collects photographs by Olivier Metzger from his series of images of the night in Soorts-Hossegor, in the Landes region in France, on the Atlantic Ocean coast. It is the first step in a larger photographic study of French night, started at his residency at Troisième Session in May 2022.

Metzger took his photographs between midnight and 4am, guided by the distinct orange glow of sodium bulbs street lighting. As these are slowly replaced by LED lights, our nights are shifting colours. Metzger’s photographs are a survey of these dark hours, of these remaining ‘fireflies’ in the urban space, and an archeology of light.

Sodium is designed by Alice Jauneau and David Vallance and published by Modds. The titles are set in Persona (Abyme, 2022).
