From In Darkness Visible, Verse I, by Nicholas Hughes
The photographs of Nicholas Hughes play with light and seeing at the extreme ends of lightness and darkness. In his earlier work, his large white on white on white photographs were like whispers of tone and nuance that rewarded the viewer when your eyes could finally detect the delicacy and wonder and richness of what was there with such subtlety. They were so fine that it was nearly impossible for the finest book printer to hint at the overall elegance of the images. And trying to show them on a computer screen would be a crime.
This new series, In Darkness Visible, on exhibition at the Photographers' Gallery in London September 13 through November 4, 2007, is equally evocative while dusted in darkness. You really should see these remarkable prints in person if you can. But if you cannot, we provide a glimmer of what you can appreciate via your computer screen.
