Under the Stars is an inspirational and immersive call to reconnect with the natural world, showing how we only need to step outside to find that, in darkness, the world lights up.
Moonlight, starlight, the ethereal glow of snow in winter...when you flick off a switch, other forms of light begin to reveal themselves.
Artificial light is everywhere. Not only is it damaging to humans and to wildlife, disrupting our natural rhythms, but it obliterates the subtler lights that have guided us for millennia. In this beautiful exploration of the power of light, Matt Gaw ventures forth into darkness to find out exactly what we're missing.
'Gaw finds wonder in the dark ... This is a powerful and valiant plea for us all to see that, unlike in science fiction, light isn't always good.'
