The PhotoPhore is glad to launch its online photography award: PERSONAL LIGHT.
Artists, photographers and amateurs are invited to submit photo works about their personal interpretation of the concept of LIGHT. PARTICIPATION is FOR FREE!
For more information click here.
How we perceive the light? A physical phenomenon which is seen differently by each one of us. A subjective element both from a sensorial point of view, and for the meaning we attribute to it. The light acts as a physical organism which modifies and get modified by the surrounded reality. Changeable, iridescent, interpreted in different ways. An alive subject which has always been a protagonist in art and architecture. Often, it’s the light itself that “builds/creates” art and architecture.
We invite you to consider the light as the choice of what to enlighten and what to leave in the darkness. Light as attention. Something that illuminates what we decide and want to see, and that isolate the rest into darkness. It enlightens the path we want to walk, it focuses on the aim we want to achieve.
Light can also be considered as a chance; a part of the context that can’t be totally controlled but that gives us the possibility to be addressed. Light as an independent energy which casually lights up and discovers the possibilities we seize. A light we need to adapt to, to fight with, to shade or direct. Light to be embraced.
