Exploring imminently visible realities

The images in The Early Light Project demand a special kind of attention and perception from the viewer. By exploring imminently visible realities, those outside the narrow optical window of human sight, the Early Light Project represents a break in the bourgeois response to traditional representational Photography. The biological role of our vision, that is the optical window through which we see, is to visually simplify and stabilize an unstable visual world so that objects within this environment remain recognizable even if the color, light direction and the brightness of the background changes.

It is the artist’s perceptual response to the visually unstable environment that is the source of these images, not the biological function of seeing.
