In series After Et fiat lux, the ikebana are composed just with the vegetal bushes (without flowers), while the presence of flowers is rather evoked by the light. The light irradiation occurs in the darkroom in the phase of production: after the film exposure and before the process of developing. The film (4x5 inch) is insert into a non-transparent and at spots perforated wrapper
and exposes it in the darkroom with lights of different colour that create glowing light prints on some parts of the images. Each of the glow it is controlled by the shielding, well thought and not left by chance, to allow a selective passage of the light. Each image is therefore unique and in the same time unrepeatable because the effect of light is unpredictable. In these series, the photographic practice is pertinent as the purely physical / chemical act, where the photo sensible film resist on photons as an impregnating tool.
