Light in Space
DESCRIPTION"Light in Space" decontextualizes the scientific foundations of light as a photographic element. It favors the concept over the form in an attempt to reduce the form itself to an almost suprematist simplicity. The photographer experiments with light, dominates it in the composition and challenges ad libitum the arrangement of colors, shapes and patterns. In the image new structures are conceived, from referents that have not been seized from reality, but rather have been created entirely by the artist through his 30-second experimentation with the light. The object is not the point of focus, and neither is the reality, but it is the creative process; the mere enjoyment of art for the grace of pure art, the uncertainty, the freedom of the gesture. It is a poetic approach to lyrical abstraction as an expression of emotions. Although for photography in general, light signifies the raw material of its potential to evoke emotions; in this photo light paints the dance of forms, bodies and mythological beings that confront and approach each other like planets, asteroids, stars and particles; They are light in space.
AUTHORMilton Sosa is a photographer, video maker and graphic designer from Havana, Cuba. It’s the people and their unique experiences that are the island’s greatest asset and his work is a direct reflection of that. He loves to share how he sees the world through the pictures he takes, inspired by pretty much any and all facets of this beautiful life, grand and bold, through unpretentious and dainty. He is relatively freshly based in California in the Bay Area. Currently he is devoted to doing photography and music videos.
“Milton Sosa's creative discourse, heterogeneous in its language/expressive ways, bets on contrasting colors, attention to detail, compositional richness and a deeply exquisite technique. In his style, he mingles in synchronous dialogue between photography and video forms. The images advocate for symmetry, refined beauty of forms, unique framing and contrasts between lights and shadows. The audiovisuals, seductive in their interplay of image and sound, draw on their photographic aesthetics, yet never cease to transmit their content through meticulous staging, narration and characterization of the cast. Milton Sosa’s work, conceptually permeated by contemporary codes, has the ability and power to trigger truly delectable encounters with art.”
