Photographers take LIGHT to the next level

LIGHT IS THE BASIS FOR PHOTOGRAPHY.


As photographers, our craft is about documenting it or manipulating it to shape a narrative.


THIERRY Du BOIS • From the Edification of Light series

OUR 70TH PRINT EDITION shares contemporary visual depictions of electromagnetic radiation and its unique qualities, opening our eyes to the power of light through a new lens.

The artists in this issue work with light as the basis of their photography, taking their

explorations to new levels.


“In the right light, at the right time, everything is extraordinary."
— Aaron Rose

Ann Piché crafts her images featuring light as her central subject; while Thierry du Bois creates abstract visions from the glow of urban architecture at night; and Vicki DaSilva uses light as a tool to create graffiti only visible with a camera.
