[installation, photographs, various sizes, 2015.]

The word photography derives from the greek φωτός (phōtos) / φῶς (phōs) meaning “light” and γραφή (graphé) “representation by means of lines” or “drawing”.

The light of the Sun needs approximately 8 minutes, t.i. 480 seconds to reach the Earth.

Without this light there would be no life (as we know it) on our planet. The light coming from the star, which is the second closest one to us (Proxima Centauri)  needs 4 years to arrive.

While observing the shining stars of the night sky, we are looking at moments of a very-very distant past.

In this photographical project I exposed bits of photographic paper using a small pinhole-camera to the rays of the Sun, each piece for a few seconds. The total time of exposure of these photos are 480 seconds, representing the 8 minutes in which the light of the Sun arrives at the Earth.
