Light is the medium; it all starts from there.
Can we control light?
Can we mould it as we please?
Is light the beginning of all arts?
Light and shade visually define objects in space; they rely on each other the same way we rely on them. The acquisition of light and its channelling allow us to shape the space around us. In its purest form, photography is a combination of few basic ingredients: light and a mean to record it.
Avant-garde photographers abandoned cameras and placed objects between the light source and the photographic paper, today, artists are experiencing a renewed interest in having physical control over every phase of the creation process.
These artists are deconstructing their photographic practice and breaking down photography’s essentials, exploring pre-digital photographic processes with a fresh enthusiasm in experimentation.
