Dark Room

Dark Room is a photography project to portray expressions that come alive in the dark, such as confidence, audacity and also delicacy.

After painting the bodies, photos were taken under a black light, revealing an intimate and chaotic reality.

The photographs were printed in a methacrylate surface (13 x 19,5 cm) and exposed to black light over a black velvet cloth. The black light enabled the UV paint to glow even through the printed photos.
