This image is a companion to my previous post. I was playing with some images that I had taken of light shining through coloured glass beads. Instead of shadows I was looking at wonderful patterns of colour which changed as I moved the beads. I was wondering how I could capture this light and yet be able to see its shadow, even though it presented no shadow, only beautiful colour. I don’t quite know how I got to this image but it fascinates me, I get a feeling as if I am looking at cave paintings and I think of how earliest man tried to capture images of what they saw. It makes me think about what is there in the absence of light, out of the void where did the light come from, if we are cosmic representations do we shine with light or do we seek to destroy it, do we need both versions of light – its presence and its absence. So many questions from such a simple image.
