Rapture #23, 2017




Rapture Series Rapture: a feeling of intense pleasure; joyous ecstasy; the expression of ecstatic joy. Before electricity people’s lives were directed by natural light. They watched it for signs of good weather and bad and for the change of seasons. Now we check in with our weather app. Natural light often goes unnoticed as we hasten to turn on lights when the sky darkens or slip into the fluorescent gloom of our offices. But, when we have the opportunity to experience light in its purest form it can scare or cheer us; make even the most mundane spot seem romantic. 19th century painters understood the drama of light. They painted the moments when the clouds opened and “divine” light fell on the land. Working intermittently as a travel photographer for more than 25 years, particularly in 3rd world countries or off the beaten path locations with little artificial light, Holcomb had the chance to document the power and beauty of the natural light that is all but lost in our world.
