MELANIE KING Ancient Light

MELANIE KING Ancient Light is self-published Zine.

A small publication of photographs from Melanie’s “Ancient Light” series of photographs.

“Ancient Light was born out of a desire to capture light from distant stars directly onto photosensitive film. Distinct from photographs of terrestrial objects, light travels for thousands, if not millions, of years before reaching the lens. To me, these images demonstrate the intimate material connection between humans, the landscape we live in and the space existing beyond our atmosphere.”

This publication is A5, Short Edge Bound, 40 pages, Perfect Bound, and printed on uncoated paper with a matte finish. The page design was created by Emma Falconer.

Also, have a look at Wavelengths and Lunar Portraits.
