I recently came across these images from Canadian artist Amy Friend when I was searching for something completely different, as is often the case when wandering the internet, and these photographs kept lingering in my thoughts for the rest of the day.
The artist states, "Through small deliberate interventions, I altered these vintage images, allowing light to pass through them. (After all, photographs are made possible with light.) In a literal and somewhat playful manner, I aimed to give the photographs back to the light, hence the title of the series, Daré alla Lucé, an Italian phrase used to describe the moment of birth."
The photographs themselves already seem to tell a fascinating story, but her manipulation of light makes each one feel tinged with the supernatural...and possibly closer to the way people appear in our dreams and distant memories?
