Piece description from the artist
The original photograph was shot in Paris, France. The City of Lights and Shadows is indeed inhabited by magical creatures.
The image is part of “The Dark Light Series” an ongoing digital research and photographic experimental elaboration stemmed from the studies on Color Theory conducted during my Artist Residency at The Josef and Anni Albers Foundation.
Born and raised in Rome, Italy, Gaia received a Law Degree from La Sapienza University, Rome, and subsequently chose to pursue an artistic career devoting her professional efforts to the visual arts and documentary photography, depicting and researching the interactions between the singular human psyche and the world-at-large, with socially driven photo-reportages and personal researches and investigations.
She works primarily as a visual artist and, since 2010, with the birth of the Light TV project, as a filmmaker. Gaia Light’s photographs and artworks have been extensively published and exhibited internationally. She is currently based in Miami.
