Still light explores light in Iceland through a foreign perspective. Light in the northernmost latitudes is in constant change, everyday it’s different. It grows gradually until you can hardly see the sun hiding in June and decreases until you cannot see more than a weak twilight in December, changing with it colors, landscapes and people.
All the disconcerting feelings that the experience of this new perception of light produces on you are expressed through these images that try to transmit the mystery of the unknown, the unstable presence of the sun and the impact of its absence. A light show celebrating 100 years of artificial light, shiny pearls with vitamin D replacing the sun, Christmas lights, candles and fireworks in the darkest time, pale skin, dark skies, colored atmospheres, the full moon in an illuminated summer night, aurora or a deep blue. All related to the cycle of light there, to the excess and to the lack of it.
