Light on Water

Malmö | Prague


‘Light on Water’ is an impressionistic photo-series, shot over the course of 2017 between Malmö and Prague. Split from any recognisable objectivity, these dream-like depictions revolve around an aura which is driven by the semiotic embodiment of light on water. Be it either in a river or sea, water has long been seen as a symbol for the subconscious – the internal world we are unaware of. ‘Light on Water’ paints this world we cannot see by manipulating the world we usually view at 24 frames per second. Much like the subconscious lies just out of reach of our cognitive abilities, this “unperceivable” world lies beyond the constraints of our perception.
