Dualities of Light and Dark, artwork by Irish Artist Emma Barone
Barone uses the process of recording two superimposed images on a photographic medium, usually done intentionally to produce a special effect. Her pieces capitalise on the dualities of light and dark, stillness and movement piercing the veil which divides the shadow from the substance, leaving the viewer with a glimpse into a vibrant parallel universe.
