• Final Day of Light

    "Final day of light" is a project concerned about two elementary concepts: time and light, ideas inherent to the medium of  photography. The project wants to evoke specific emotions and feelings in the viewer: the undefined silhouettes of people gazing through a window from a shadowy interior towards a luminous exterior seek to arouse the thought that if there was no light left, nothing - not even people - would be visible. In other words, if light vanished, we would disappear too; which is exactly what happens as time goes by, time, precisely the other concept of this project. In this sense, both time and light are entwined in the photographic images as they are entwined in our existence. "Final day of light" represents a way to think about the brevity of life, about how objects remain while people inevitably fade away. In this way, photography finds its reason for being by translating thoughts into images.                                                                                                                                        Luca Nicolini © All rights reserved P.
