Through small deliberate interventions, I altered these vintage images, allowing light to pass through them. (After all, photographs are made possible with light.) In a literal and somewhat playful manner, I aimed to give the photographs back to the light, hence the title of the series, Dare alla Luce, an Italian phrase used to describe the moment of birth.

I'm extremely fascinated by old pictures. Especially from the victorian era. With an almost automatic drawing i transform them in a strange and surreal world of a fusion of clandestine Voodou, ancestral memory, and personal revelation. I give them life again through my imagination. I'm like a mediumship. I allow my hand to move randomly ,expressing the subconscious so that the final result may reveal something of the psyche. I do not always look to tell a story or create meaning.
Key words: Old - Portrait - Imagination - Life - Colour - Transform - Surreal - Memory - Medium
Photographer Janne Parviainen has been experimenting with a fun form of photographic light painting that resembles 3D topographical maps. Exposure times can take over 30 minutes as he carefully moves through the room with a light “tracing” every surface and object.
