A Division of the Light

Christopher Burns


It begins on a quiet city street. A woman is robbed, the crime witnessed by a man holding a camera. In the aftermath, victim and voyeur meet. It ends six months later, by which point both their lives – and the way they choose to live them – have changed irrevocably. This is the story of what happened in-between.

‘A Division of the Light is a strange, brilliant work about photography, sexual obsession, the human need to leave some indelible mark of having existed in this life before we go into a vast ocean of oblivion…’ – Kazuo Ishiguro
