Changing Light: Presence of Absence

An awareness of the absence of something - a being or an object - affects us more than its presence.What form does the paradox of the presence of absence take when it is described conceptually? How is it communicated both visually and emotionally in real-life scenarios?

Rendered by manipulating light, the tension between that which is and that which is not disrupts our assumptions about photographic narrative and representation. Do we respond by simply contemplating the aesthetics or do we re-examine our own preconceptions, allowing a multitude of perspectives?
