What may be the deepest meanings of the images shown are not always easily recognizable at first glance. They emerge with increasing clarity only as we experience them. They take on a living reality to the degree that we are able to penetrate the mask that hides us from ourselves.

The title LIGHT7 suggests levels —as well as Light to the seventh power. The levels are mainly intellectual, and as noted earlier, the powers emotional. The number seven makes us wonder also if 7 is the highest. Well, no, 12 disciples, 12 Tribes of Israel, 12 signs of the Zodiac, and so it is better to say that there is always more.

Possibly the most useful observation in teaching creative photography to students at M.I.T. has been this: people in our culture talk photographs rather than experience them visually. Whatever is being looked at, photographs or anything else, the input is visual while the tagging is verbal.

The photographs in the exhibition were often grouped in threes (though not in the book). This was done to suggest an interaction of certain forces, a triad. At octaves higher than seen in Light7 three forces interacting are sometimes spoken of as Trinity...a spiritual law.
