Monica Lek possesses a nonchalant style that is only undermined by her flawless execution. In other words, her work feeds off of happenstance; but the manner in which the moment is captured reeks of precision and perfection. Lek’s series, Light Arousal, features sensual, and somewhat distant, portraits of sunlight. In the series, the Barcelona based photographer finds beauty in the quotidian while highlighting the lights and shadows.
