NORTERHN LIGHT FROM DAWN TO DUSK describes coastlines, forests, mountains, fields, cities, and towns that have been captured at all hours of the day throughout the year. It is a book of enchantingly lit images steeped in magic and fascinating stories that describe the typically northern quality of light. When the shutter opens the cameras image sensor is bombarded with energy packets, or photons, which are in turn converted to electrical impulses, and the image is captured in the fraction of a second before it slams shut. Life begins when a chlorophyll molecule inside a green leaf binds the energy emitted by the sun in chemical form by absorbing a quantum of the light. The solar energy flows through a complex web of plants, herbivores, predators and decomposers causing cells to divide, muscles to move and eyes to see. Light is the beginning of everything.
