| Dare Alla Luce

“We ourselves are made of stardust.” This quote, in all its layers, rushed hard at me as I marveled at Amy Friend’s “Dare Alla Luce”. Amy’s series, named for the Italian phrase meaning “to give birth” or literally, “to give to the light”, was created by piercing vintage photographs, long lost and forgotten, and photographing them anew against the light.

    I just saw her work in Bloomington at the Friday Gallery Walk. It was breathtaking.
