Photographer Ben Canales takes mesmerizing long exposure shots of the night sky and stars.

Canales grew up in in the Northeast of the US in between three major cities. As a kid, Canales never got enough oppurtunity to see many stars. A few years ago, he moved to East Coast for the West Coast where the skies are less polluted. “It's been a thrill and a treasured experience to look up and see a literal field of diamonds in the stars above,” he says.

I go out to photograph the stars, first for my own personal enjoyment to try and capture the wonder that I feel; but secondly, I do it for you, the viewer. I do it for my friends and family back home that do not have the opportunity to see the stars like I can here. My photography is about wonder. As adults we’ve lost the child-like wonder our world was beaming with when we were younger. I believe it is still there to be seen one just needs to work a bit harder to find it. My images are purposed to show the wonder of the sky as if you were standing under it yourself looking up.
