The Light Keeper



Shot in 3 different countries: Ireland, France and Czech Republic. I was working on this project from now and then from September last year until now (2018). Is he bringing or stealing the light, maybe replacing it? What do you think is happening? I’d love to hear your thoughts about it!

The bulbs in light houses are surprisingly small, it's the glass lens that's huge. Today they only use a bulb that's a couple of hundred watts.

There's a great lighthouse museum in Maine that has a "small" 3 foot high lantern that floats on mercury, it weighs about 1/2 ton because there's so much lead in the glass lenses. The museum tour guide encourages people to spin it. It takes a lot of effort to get it started but not much to keep it moving (mass & motion).
