Eternal Return

In ancient alchemy, Sol Niger (Black Sun) referred to the dark light used to illuminate the departed, becoming a symbol of enlightenment borne through loss. Composing black and white photographs on a windowpane to obscure the light of the Sun, this series portrays my turn to photography as a means of overcoming family bereavement, questioning the use of photographs in the cyclical nature of mourning and passing of memories across generations whilst constructing an ancestral past which may belong more to dreams and myth than reality. The series further seeks to explore photography’s links to alchemy as the forerunner to chemistry, inviting the viewer to decode the photograph as an alchemical trace of light within darkness and darkness within light.
