French photographer Nicolas Rivals is based in Paris. In one of his latest series entitled ‘Eloge de la Stabilité’ (In Praise of the Stability) he creates amazing light paintings. Regarding them he associates: ‘There is always hope that even in the depths of night a glimmer will appear. Light is never as reassuring as the anguish of the shadow. A little light, a little sense would for a moment make the chaos disappear.’ Rivals works show stunning luminous installations in midst of a cold concrete surrounding. He creates a graphic connection between the stony walls and the tenderness of the golden light – and achieves a very aesthetic symbiosis between two extremes.
