Marc Volk . Out of Darkness

Book Presentation


With his nocturnal photographs, Marc Volk reduces in two different ways. First he takes the brightness of day back out complex visual landscapes. Night swallows up whole dimensions, reduces broader spatial perspectives, and robs the image of some of its rationality. Volk leaves the act of reduction to the darkness … and knows that only what shines or is illuminated will remain visible. The light that he creates and shapes in this way ultimately becomes a metaphor for the creation of reality.
