Light

The very meaning of the word photography is “drawing with light.” Without light neither the image nor the art exist. Light is an exhibition that showcases images that have light as a significant element in the image.

We are thrilled to re-open DCP’s gallery after a year of being dark. It’s fitting that the first exhibition back in the gallery is entitled Light and features the selections from our most recent call for entry that have light as a significant element in the image, as if the light itself is a subject in the composition. You can view the exhibition online here.

Honorable Mentions in bold

“Without light neither sight nor photography would exist. Yet, I had never reflected so deeply on its many facets until I had the privilege of selecting images for this exhibition. Light itself as the subject. Light enhancing the beauty of nature. Light in contrast to shadow creating a sense of mystery. This exhibition, and the photographers behind the images it contains, reveal both the wonder of light and the talent of those that use photography to capture it.”
