A psychedelic love video

22 Jun

A video which was done by a friend for our friends’ wedding which took place yesterday, in the longest day of the year. The voice in the background is the groom singing “I love you”. I loved the shooting style, which uses the simple technique of suddenly pointing the camera towards the sun or the illuminated sky again and again, stunning the camera with light and achieving a special transcendent quality, which transforms the singer’s words into a proclamation of love to the sun and the universe itself. The gaze, which is directed towards the sun again and again from various settings in the Israeli environment, makes this into a love song to the sun who is with us everywhere radiating its glowing light. Beautiful.
