The word "photography" was created from the Greek roots φωτός (phōtos), and γραφή (graphé).
Phōtos, genitive of φῶς (phōs), means “light” and graphé means” representation by means of lines" or “drawing".
Together they mean "drawing with light”.
What we see, what we look at, creates the visual databank in our minds. It fills the visual landscape within us. In ancient Hermetical teachings, there is a famous axiom: 'As within, so without, as without, so within'. What we therefore bring into our inner visual landscape is the visual materia we use to create the theatre of our life. It is us that designs our movie of life.
It is important to reflect on where our eyes spend their time. What happens when you watch images on TV for example? What are you taking in? What images are you allowing into your inner visual world?
What images would you choose now to bring into your world? Where do you want your eyes to spend their time? What images do you choose to create? How do you want to create a harmony between your 'as within, so without'.
This is all choice.
What does this offer you?
Drawing with Light is a platform where you can participate in creating images that define the visual landscape you choose to create.
It will offer different projects, online exhibitions and workshops where you can be an active member of re-shaping your world and the world around you.
