TO GIVE TO THE LIGHT


{source: mavericks a la mode}

Though this blog is primarily about the growing economy of digital images in general, I have been on a real fine art photography kick lately – possibly because of the work I saw at LACMA’s ‘In Wonderland‘ exhibit the other week. Today I found some photographs by Amy Friend, and they’re part of a series she did called Daré alla Lucé, which means “to give birth” (“to give to the light”) in Italian. To create these images, Friend altered vintage photographs to allow light to pass through them – making the effect of online reprints quite different than the originals.

So much for photography lacking an aura.
