Daré alla Lucé.

Daré all a Lucé is an Italian phrase meaning "to give birth." It's also the name of a photography series by Amy Friend. On her website, Amy writes, "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."  Beautiful.

 

See more from Amy Friend, here; the entire series is incredible. Found thanks (again) to My Modern Met.

Those are beautiful-- and so cool! I'd like to try one of those on my own... maybe make a night light with one of my own photos? :)

Pretty! The one with the horse is definitely my favorite.

Ah, this is really cool...light is really the most important part of photography. Everything depends on the proper lighting. What a great homage to that.
