The project was born on one of those sleepless working nights. The Zeropuntozerozero Edizioni team was looking for an alternative way to publish a special series of images of an iconic, surreal and mysterious New York in the dark. A Moleskine notebook was on the desk, the perfect support for a personal journey into the abyss of night. But something was missing. They were missing people - their observations, feelings, memories. So they decided to ask as many people as they knew the same question: What is Night for you?
