With rare access from the Palm Springs Modern Committee, Australian photographer Tom Blachford‘s latest project takes in the gorgeous mid-century properties of Palm Springs. Shot under moonlight, the mysterious series looks like it could be straight from an ’80s slasher movie, albeit the most stylish John Carpenter film to date. Try to spot the architectural aristocracy, the Kaufmann House designed by legendary architect Richard Neutra is featured in Blackford’s series too.
