Like all photographers, Amy Friend requires the benefits of light to create her art. Photography cannot exist without it. Her series “Dare all Luce” (an Italian phrase used to describe the moment of birth) examines the very literal – but also transcendental – effect of light in photography. By manipulating old photographs with pin holes and then reshooting them in front of a bright light source, Amy reinvents them, giving them new energy and a new life. I love the magical effect her technique creates – the shimmer of a soul in a frozen image. Visit her website to learn more about her work.
