You’ve heard the story of Atlas, condemned to hold up the sky for    eternity? Metaphors ring true. Undeterred: we craved relief and found it only in time and light.

Searching for the dualities that are present in meaningful, lifelong connections, Time + Light is both simple and complex. They watch time pass on the same clock, watch the sun rise and set. Time together is achingly long and also painfully short. Dramas rise up to disrupt the quiet and are just as quickly dissolved into the general steadiness of the years.
