A Play of Light

Reflecting personal impressions of moments that awaken the mystical, symbolise transcendence, and echo impermanence, this is a document free from the conventional storyline. Rather, it is a representation of light, captured as it is reflected in everyday surroundings, altering the familiar and revealing the unfamiliar.

The images supports the idea that the gentle observation of light’s playful expression – its fleeting manifestations – stimulates deeper thought and opens the mind to a state of meditation. It therefore presents a space where fact and narrative hold no meaning. All that remain is a personal communication, where the inner being reacts simultaneously as decipherer and creator, and the eyes are allowed to see life differently.
