With the full moon at our backs, we prowl the night to hunt for lost gems. We sneak inside American history abandoned by progress to turn the lights on one more time. Using long exposure, color light, and storytelling, we return life to the lost.


With a love of both road trips and Americana, Katie and Chris found a way to create art in the middle of nowhere, in the middle of the night. The mission is always the same: Explore the Lost. Play in the Dark. Illuminate History.
