About the Book
We look at the world with borrowed light, and the photographer borrows light to make an image. Photographer Mark C. Christianson uses this borrowed light to explore the world around us, and uses it as a way to see past the ignorable ordinary into the beautiful and interesting.
In this collection of photographs from 2008–2010, Mark explores the world through the play of light and color: bold colors that enliven a photograph, subtle changes of shade, or even the absence of color. Light and color may in turn reveal the form of an object, delight in its shape, or expose its textures.
These varied photographs are a feast to the eyes and a window into the beauty of our world.
