THE "DARE ALLA LUCE" SERIES IS A CREATION BY THE CANADIAN ARTIST AMY FRIEND. THE PROJECT IS BASED ON A SERIES OF VINTAGE IMAGES ACCUMULATED OVER THE YEARS, IN WHICH THE ARTIST HAS GIVEN LIFE THROUGH THE CONCEPT OF LIGHT.
Bucking old photo card allows the light to filter on the image, illuminating bodies, faces, views and details. The artist uses photography as a means of exploring the relationship between what is visible and unseen, between what is present and absent. The goal is to show the fragility of the photographic object, life and history, “give birth” to the birth and a new vision of the latter. His work that explores the concept of time and memory is a key element for his creations and inquiries: the photographs are thus animated with a new meaning, including the mysteries they hold.
