Artist Amy Friend often explores the connection between the past and present, her ancestors and herself. In her Dare alla Luce series, she has taken vintage photographs and brought them to life with small pinholes of light. The effect on the figures is apparitional, a reminder of our own mortality and transience. Friend says, “I aimed to give the photographs back to the light, hence the title of the series, Dare alla Luce, an Italian phrase used to describe the moment of birth.”
