Little Light Left is my latest, ongoing, personal photographic project.
I officially introduced it in Issue 3 of Vantage Point Magazine. At the time of writing, the magazine still features some photos I haven’t yet published anywhere else.
As you can see by perusing the gallery, the project is based on heavily contrasted black and white photos, conveying the idea of darkness eroding landscapes, interiors, objects, scenes that can still be identified thanks to what little light is left shaping their contours.
Another way of looking at it is that every picture starts as a completely black canvas on which one can direct all the (little) light that is left. Yet another interpretation could be that these might be images of a world that’s losing hope and light.
Some of them remind me of the impressions left on the retina when we quickly close our eyes after staring at a bright scene for a while. But there are many ways to look at these scenes. It would be nice to know what kind of reaction they get out of you.
The project continues to grow as an album on Flickr. So far, all photos have been taken with an iPhone 4.
