Coming to Light.
Light can brighten, it can clarify and show things, but light of itself is invisible. Only when it strikes matter, can we perceive light. That light also has character is something we feel at every sunrise, or every visit to a bar.
In the exhibition COMING TO LIGHT, 5 photographers describe the magic of light and how it subtly influences our moods. Be it in an urban environment, in nature, or our private sphere, the exhibited works trace the various characters of light, suggesting that not only music, but light, too, directly influences our emotional world.
Light is music without sound.
Boris Eldagsen (Berlin): only works at night. Like a moth, he prowls the streets, in search of light. He combines “street photography” with “staged photography”. He does not illustrate, but rather attempts to cause place, person and incident to disappear and transform into a timeless portrait of human consciousness.
Werner Mansholt (Darmstadt): Street photographer, Member of the DCP. Portrays the light in our urban environment.
Eckart Bartnik (Wiesbaden): Not only relates the history of portrait photography, by means of self-portraits, he shows how changeable one’s own personality can be inr different light.
Dirk Johanns (Frankfurt): The Polaroid photographer, inspired by sunlight, seeks the light that penetrates windows in the private sphere.
Wolfgang Raith (Frankfurt): is engaged with lost light, where does it go at night?
