The images in this series are pictures painted with light. I use a variety of light sources such as street lights, car lights or specially set up light installations and “paint” by moving my camera to capture patterns and express moods. None of these images are digitally processed or retouched and each photo is a unique combination of the light set up and movement of my body holding the camera. Each photo captures a unique and unrepeatable moment of creation.

Light Is My Paint

Images in this series are available as the following limited editions:

All prints are produced on professional photographic archival silver based light sensitive paper. The image is “painted” onto the paper by exposing it to light. This creates an analogue style print from a digital file with unparalleled depth, subtlety of tonal variation and shadow detail.

The prints in the Light Is My Paint series are printed on C-type Kodak Metallic paper which has a rich metallic base. This paper has 242gsm weight, smooth texture, slight silver metallic paper tone and medium gloss finish. The colours have a reflective, metallic and 3-dimensional feel with high mid-tones and highlights which add luminosity and iridescence. After experimenting with different photo-papers I found C-type Kodak Metallic paper to be the best for expressing my idea of “painting with light”.

Each print is printed on demand and may take up to 10 working days plus delivery time to reach you. I will also provide you the Certificate of Authenticity for each artwork print. To purchase prints or for more details please contact me.
