amy friend’s photographs: cosmic connect-the-dots

photo: amy friend

We’ve recently discovered a new series of photographs by Amy Friend called Dare alla Luce:

Through small deliberate interventions, I altered these vintage images, allowing light to pass through them. (After all, photographs are made possible with light.) In a literal and somewhat playful manner, I aimed to give the photographs back to the light, hence the title of the series, Dare alla Luce, an Italian phrase used to describe the moment of birth.

 

We couldn’t help seeing the lights as connectors, between people, ideas, feelings, memories, the past and present: those subtle-body kinds of communication and experiences that happen all the time, that we’re made of, and out of which we make things.

    Beautiful! Makes me think of “dust” from Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials series.

    Ohhhhh. I forgot all about that. Thanks so much. It is very much that.
