Alexander Harding Creates Ethereal Spaces Using Sunlight As His Subject
One of the most integral aspects of photography is the utilization of light. For his series, “Visible Light,” photographer Alexander Harding uses this vital resource as his subject. Harding manipulates natural sunlight, refracting it to create ethereal spaces filled with the soft luminescence of the sun’s rays.
Harding said he was partly inspired by the artist James Turrell , known for its exceptional and large light installations, and said “the light is not really something that reveals, since it is itself revelation. It would seem that Harding took these words to heart in his work.
