We reflect light, 2017.
Photography, installation, light.

The series explores the symbolic significance of light and its reflections. The study started with the idea of "the eternal universal good", as the light is sometimes interpreted by the Eastern religious systems. The photographs present us with glimmering portraits of anonymous people placed in a natural environment that create reflections with mirrors in their hands that look like light bodies. Because of the lightboxes, scattered lights seem like in constant motion, and they are spreading throughout the landscape, as opposite to the people and their light reflections that stand still in the center of the landscapes. In a metaphorical way the photographs suggests that despite the inevitable duality of light, which always carries the anticipation of death, each person has the potential to act in the direction of good and positive.
