Light Came Through the Window

Shapes, patterns and shadows that angular winter morning light made in and around my room continued to intrigue me and I started photographing them again this winter, though not with the same voracity as earlier (see The Light Came From the Window). This time, however, colour played an important role in the images. Thanks for looking, hope you will like them! They are available as affordable prints on archival paper.

A speck of sunlight coming in through the window caught my attention on a cold winter morning and intrigued me by its shape. The next few hours and the next morning were spent exploring and discovering the shapes that morning light coming in through windows made at different places around the living room and interesting shapes were photographed. The thought of photographing ‘light’ seemed to be a very simple or basic idea so to keep the whole exercise simple, a pocket digital compact camera was used for the shoot. Colour wasn’t playing a significant part in the images so they were converted to black and white during post-processing. This turned out to be one of the most enjoyable photo shoots I’ve indulged in and one I could do in my pajamas! The name of the series was inspired by lyrics of the song Love Itself by Leonard Cohen. These photographs are available as affordable prints on archival paper.
