Settings: Canada, 2012
Leading Lady: Amy Friend, Canadian born photographer, has a master degree in Fine Arts from the University of York and several publications about her work in arts and photography journals both in Canada and worldwide
Plot: Amy chose an Italian name for her project, “Dare alla luce”. In Italian the literal meaning is “bring to light” but the figurative one is “give birth to”. Amy uses worn out vintage photographs collected over the years and she brings them back to life with the use of dots of light that penetrate into the image , just like small fireflies. Light, in the first place, is what makes photography possible: Amy’s images are therefore born twice and both times thank to light.The result is pure poetry.
