Luminous Numinous explores the concept of the soul in portrait photography presenting the sitters as the light radiation of a transpersonal energy. The series has been conceived to go beyond the indexical relation between photography and the material identity of individuals. The intention behind Luminous Numinous is to address metaphysical questions about the phenomenology of existence in relation to visuality and photography.
Are we just the matter that we see? Is it possible to photograph the soul? Can a numinous force define who we are? Could we be creatures made of luminous energy? And as such, Are we beings of light?
Luminous Numinous will be presented at the London College of Communication from 15th November until 17th November. This event is part of the Master of Arts in Photography the artist is about to complete.
