City Lights

City Lights is a continuum to the Nearsightseeing series. After registering the city all blurred I somehow got the idea to combine a blurry bokeh abstractions with sharp imagery as in-camera multiple exposures. The images produced this way seem combine the tangible with something ethereal and create a very different view of the city scenery.

I got my glasses when I was about ten. From there it took over thirty years before I was hit by the thought of thinking about my myopia as something else than a limitation. One evening, as I was out walking, it suddenly hit me. What good could there be in being nearsighted? I looked around me over my glasses and concentrated in what I really saw. I saw colors. I saw lights. I saw an abstract environment. I realised that I can see, without the help of my camera, what would look good as a blurry image.
