Shadow's Praise is the result of the dialogue between the French photographer David Nissen and the Japanese music artist Akhira Sano initiated by IIKKI, between December 2022 and March 2023.

The complete project works in two physical imprints: the book and the disc (vinyl/cd). It should be experienced in different ways: the book read alone, the disc listened to alone, the book and the disc read and listened to together.

David Nissen takes us on an atmospheric journey through fog, rain and fading lights. Explaining that he enjoys being in a contemplative state, he says he enjoys walking, driving, listening to music, which inspires him a lot. He is looking for a strong, powerful light, an atmosphere that can tell a story, which will be an invitation to travel through his images. With a background in cinema, it makes sense for him to approach photography like a director in search of the perfect location… the result is broody, sublime, as well as cinematic. His shoots in France and abroad are opportunities to exercise his photographer’s eye, to make such personal and intimate series of photos during solitary wanderings in places that each have their own story to tell or to invent. The rare human beings who appear take on the appearance of movie characters whose enigmatic thoughts we would like to know…the visual strength of certain places or architectures, under singular light atmospheres, takes the visitor into a fiction in which he himself becomes an actor is an exchange of glances. Also photographing through impurities or raindrops, his search for materiality gives a thickness that we encounter in painting, his approach to photography is deliberately pictorial and emotional.
For him, cinematography and photography are two passions that merge and feed off each other: Write a story with Light.
