1. the action of enlightening or the state of being enlightened. The action or state of attaining or having attained spiritual knowledge or insight
2. a European intellectual movement of the late 17th and 18th centuries emphasizing reason and individualism rather than tradition. It was heavily influenced by 17th-century philosophers such as Descartes, Locke, and Newton, and its prominent exponents include Kant, Goethe, Voltaire, Rousseau, and Adam Smith.
This photography was shot at night in Canterbury Cathedral, Canterbury, England. What struck me about this moment was the polarity between light and darkness. In post production I used actions and textures to help me pull out that story. In my mind, the journey from darkness into light is the path from ignorance to enlightenment. This piece is meant to stir inner dialogue. I hope it stirs in you some of the questions it stirred in me.
