Are We Dancers? | Photo-Book

200.00

Of all the forces of nature there is one whose power has been recognised throughout time to be totally mysterious and totally involved with man and that force is the night. It wears curlers studded with sparks, and where the smoke clouds have died away, men have climbed up to those gliding stars.

Louis Aragon. Le Paysan de paris. 1926

The night makes the world seem like a different place. As the day slowly fades, lampposts begin to wake up, and darkness descends. Electrical lights are switched on and the temperature changes. Some spaces grow deeper as shadows envelop them; others become stark in the light of a bulb.

Slowly, the world grows silent. Shadows play with the imagination. There is something decidedly sensual about the night with its peculiar sights and sounds.

People recede into the safety of their homes as sleep engulfs the world. The lights are turned on. The lights start commanding the space. Shadows impair objectivity and distort judgment. People assume the form of silhouettes, and merge into shadows, their individuality lost in the dark.

The Chiaroscuro of the night and its many mysteries. The world feels different. It is emptier, more intriguing, perhaps even revealing.

This photo book is a result of walks around different parts of the world after the sun has set and shadows have taken over the world. It is a series born out of the restlessness of sitting indoors after dark, and the love of wandering about in the night.
