“Lighght” is a collection of photographs of seemingly disparate subject matter, at first glance chaotic, confusing, or illogical. Its pages pair up in uneasy ruses, attempting to communicate with each other in coded gestures. If its sceneries have anything to say, it is obscured from all but the most curious, questioning viewer. They seem to hide more than they show, and the few portraits in the book appear to be of seekers, onlookers, or searchers.
In a review of Lighght, the Irish writer Moray Mair describes the images as “innocuous yet fully present, as if the energy of the universe is moving through them, each image encapsulating the emotional undercurrent that runs through our lives.”
It is in these certain moments that the book’s imagery inhere, yet, as the pages connect and flutter and disappear and appear again, “Lighght” is ultimately an attempt to doff the outer layers of life, and see through its outer symptoms.
