I recently came across the work of artist/photographer Amy Friend via The Jealous Curator and was instantly smitten. There is such a dreamy quality to these images. I am a huge fan of found images so I was even more delighted to discover she used vintage found images. The series is called Daré alla Lucé... The following is her statement:
Through small deliberate interventions, I altered these vintage images, allowing light to pass through them. (After all, photographs are made possible with light.) In a literal and somewhat playful manner, I aimed to give the photographs back to the light, hence the title of the series, Daré alla Lucé, an Italian phrase used to describe the moment of birth.
