Light Studies   Light Studies  concerns itself with aspects of illumination. Each piece is visually distinct but they all reference the concept of the penumbra: an area that is not in complete shadow or complete darkness. In some instances, the final pieces are singular images; in others they reflect a transition of time or shift in the quality of light via a series of panels. Working in a very reductive manner, the images images were produced from simple black and white photographic compositions, cyanotype chemistry, manipulated and scanned glass, and cliché verres. By stripping an image down to its most essential components, the photographs speak to how well ingrained these compositional tools are in our visual language while also allowing a space in which meaning can shift. Omission of information allows for greater speculation as to “what it is”. While the lighter areas of the image permit details to be registered to a certain degree, the darker corners and edges become gaps or voids where only the smallest hint of information can be retrieved.
