Light Break is a documentary and aesthetic encounter between photography, history, science and visual art. Inspired by the historical practice of medical phototherapy, developped by Danish Nobel laureate Niels Ryberg Finsen (1860-1904) Nicolai Howalt was able to absorb select areas of light from the sun, allowing the remaining areas of the electromagnetic spectrum to pass through Finsen's original rock crystal lenses onto photosensitive paper (C-print). This unique method of light exposure resulted in a series of original imprints created by the sunrays passing through unhindered, directly from the sun and onto the paper. Item #15556
