Member of the Month November 2022
There are amazing things in nature, and this life, that are unseen. By using curiosity, science and technology, what is hidden by nature can become visible and enter into our awareness. This project is about showing that beauty and deep meaning can be found in the invisible. In this work, I highlight the beauty and strangeness of light’s quantum properties to show what pure energy looks like. In effect, light itself is the subject of this photography.
These images are made on platinum / palladium, cyanotype and gum dichromate emulsions. These emulsions are sensitive to ultra-violet light, a light color that we cannot see. I have used various ultra-violet light sources and glass and metallic objects to make visible and capture the beautiful and mysterious quantum mechanical nature of pure light energy.
I hope you like them.
