The Last Dance of Midsummer

“If it only could be like this always—always summer, always alone, the fruits always ripe…” Beautiful words from Evelyn Waugh’s classic text, “Brideshead Revisited,” which perfectly captures the fleeting joys of a short, Northern summer. This is a concept that photographer Yume Cyan understands fully. In her midsummer-style images, circles of golden light dance across the canvas like fireflies. Everything is alive and green and magical.
