LIGHT BREAK 2012-2015
The legacy of Danish physician Niels Finsen was revived when Nicolai Howalt
initiated an artistic reinterpretation of Finsen’s research. Enticed by the opportunity of offering a photographic vision of the mysterious chemical rays isolated by Finsen for medical purposes, Howalt applies the original convex lenses and quarts filters in an experimental pursuit of seemingly raw aesthetic depiction. Mounted on an analogue large format camera, filters and lenses both absorb and direct otherwise invisible rays from the sun, allowing for their direct exposure and expression on emulsion coated paper.
