LUX LIT FEATURED FILM INTRODUCTION
Film photography has a unique and important role in the art of photography and for this reason Lux Lit wants to feature it. For some types of photography, film is the perfect choice and skillful execution is needed to carry this out. Film photography allows for a certain beauty, sensitivity and craftsmanship complimenting the genre and we hope to highlight artists who use it to showcase their many different concepts and approaches.
With this in mind, Lux Lit, along with you, wants to show its support for film photographers and their work by featuring an artist monthly. This month’s featured artist is Mike Stacey and Lux Lit would like to thank Mike for his collaboration and wonderful work!

Gurung Honey Hunters by Andrew Newey
Photographer Andrew Newey documented the ancient tradition of honey hunting in central Nepal. Perched precariously on rope ladders, honey hunters risk their lives to gather the honey, using only long sticks known as tangos to knock the honeycomb off the Himalayan cliffside and into baskets, which are then lowered to the ground.
Exploring the Golden Temple of Amritsar
In the city of Amritsar in India’s Punjab region, the Harmandir Sahib (ਹਰਿਮੰਦਰ ਸਾਹਿਬ) stands as the most sacred site of the Sikh faith.
The temple, or gurdwara, was first constructed in the 2nd century after the excavation of the holy lake in which it stands. Guru Arjan, the fifth Sikh Guru, designed the temple as a central place of worship for his faith. The architecture and decoration of the site are marked by details symbolic of the Sikh worldview. Notably, a series of four entrances open onto the lake from all sides, welcoming visitors of all faiths.
After suffering substantial damage during a wartime attack, the temple was rebuilt in the 1700s and later adorned with its signature gold exterior in the early 19th century. Now, the temple itself houses the Adi Granth, the central religious text of Sikhism, as well as memorial plaques and inscriptions for commemorating sacred sites, events and the Sikh soldiers who died in the World Wars.
