Creatures of Light and Darkness – Kate Breaky
We hear them at night in the desert. The creatures we live with but rarely encounter—out there in the moonlight—grunting, howling, singing, growling. We set up a small camera—motion sensing, infrared, barely visible—to secretly watch as they come and go in the darkness, or on their way home at dawn.

Photographer Kate Breakey says she delights in the images she captures with her small camera of the Sonoran Desert’s lively night traffic. She says she is continually astonished to see the wild animals going about their wanderings and lives. It is this passionate anticipation and amazement that Breakey brings to her life size and larger images of the desert’s heartbeat—the coyotes, jackrabbits, foxes, owls and javelina—in her new series of hand-colored photographs, Creatures of Light and Darkness.
