“Lighting tree” (c) Moises Levy Trees have a special meaning within the human mind and even more when mixed with light. They represent a divine concept. I think this image is powerful because it mixes several concepts: Light (Lighting) Dawn (Restart) Soledad (Being alone) It's an image that makes the viewer's vision penetrate the composition. This image has a special meaning for me because I took with several friends who told me that this was an almost impossible image. I ran to this place from far away while I visualized the image. I knew that there was an image there as several factors were coming together to create a special moment I shot several exposures due to the difficulty of the backlight and manually took the best of each in Photoshop.

Each artist spotlight focuses on the talents of an individual artist whose work speaks for itself. Unlike the artist interviews, the spotlights are focused more on the individual artist shaping their responses to a series of more open-ended questions than the more guided questions I create for the interviews. That said, the set questions were specifically formulated to elicit very personal responses from each artist. In fact, part of the power of these spotlights is to see how each artist chooses to represent his or herself based on their often very individual responses to these seemingly common questions.
