edwin seda’s photoset explores how portraits — being people and the building itself as a portrait canvas on the urban landscape — interact and engage with light through offering itself as both opaque and transparent artifacts in architectural photography. architecture lends itself to a multifaceted, creative process and photography should therefore simply come in to simplify this process, by breaking down the elements. the set therefore uses light as the sole driver for how these images and the building is explored.


edwin seda’s latest photoset explores studioMAS’ circa gallery as a portrait canvas for light

 

 

here in photographer edwin seda‘s images, light purely takes the center stage and as it casts big shadows that make us aware of time and the season, it does the same to cast small shadows that tells us how tangible architecture is as an opaque addition and how we can touch these with our hands. but even within all these, we exist in these spaces that ultimately do not exist without light and light then cannot be expressed without these opaque and transparent spaces.

the images try to bring this out as a state of being. even as we are limited to photography and in how it portrays the complexities and experiences of space, we can freeze these moments in time and edwin seda’s images of johannesburg’s circa gallery especially try to convey experience of place all through light.
