Hannes Heikura leads the viewer to the boundaries of light and darkness, to the ultimate core of photography-the depiction of light. Working with the means of black and white photography,Heikura gives light the leading role in his pictures without the noise of colour.
The metropol photographed by Heikura is a landscape of the mind undefined in both time and space. It is a non-place with overtones of film noir and Sin City,an immaterial state of mind,where light and shade engage in an endless dance.
In Hannes Heikura´s photographs,the city is given a previously unseen interpretation as the scene of dark spaces,shadows and blinding light.Dark Zone is a story of todays world-of light and shadow-marked by the photographers strong artistic vision.
