A Journey of Light through the Heart
I was once asked what my favourite colour was, Black I answered, because all other colours emerge from it and retreat back into it. It is the sum of all other colours. It provides a solidity to white, while allowing it freedom to move, to rest and to hang.
These images represent the journey of light that passes through the lens, the eye, travelling through the heart and is only then accepted by the release of the shutter.
All images have an illuminated quality, a particular point in the image that provides a focus for reflection within us all.
‘An Illuminated Compassion’ is an attempt to draw out the compassion in you, the viewer to the subjects presented here. An innocence present in yourself that you recognise within these chosen works.
