Exhibitions // Coming up // Drawing with Light Photography
23 September

Drawing with Light Photography


The Exhibition follows an accidental collaboration between Artist and Photographer guided by the literal meaning of Photo-Graphy as ‘Drawing with Light’.


The subject matter involves such as 6,000 blue marbles, cardboard cut-outs, tin foil, polystyrene, shards of resin, wall paper paste and tracing papers. All the images presented are as photographed.


A combination of LEDs, room lighting and natural light, along with movement and varying exposures contributed to some unexpected transformational effects.


None are digitally conceived, generated or manipulated beyond traditional darkroom techniques by use of computer.


Since it was not possible to include all the work in the Exhibition, there is an accompanying book, ‘Play of Light’ with some 300 photographs depicting the progression of the project to the time of the Exhibition.
