These are part of an ongoing investigation into film plane perspective and its effects on spatial recognition.
These photographs of lightbulbs are created using only the light from the bulb itself. The resulting series of silver gelatin prints are photochemical impressions of the interaction between two mechanical devices, lightbulb and camera. While both were designed with functional purposes of creating or recording light, these images focus on inherent qualities in each that depart from the sun or the human eye. My hope is to reveal something uniquely human by examining the interplay between these now ubiquitous technologies.
