I love duality or the idea of it i.e Light and darkness, ebbs and flows, day and night, yin and yang, beck and bara. Darkness has always been there, but light shows us time and time again that its existence is something worth fighting for. Much like in the silence of death, life will always fight for its right to exist. I believe in light, in Mwanga because it is bold enough to exist where there’s nothing but darkness all around it, but at the same time, light wouldn’t mean anything without darkness.
P.s when I was recording the curtain, I was simply enjoying the dance it had with the wind in darkness.
