Contact sheet: Lightplay
An experimental photography project that embraces contradiction
The word photography stems from the Greek words “phos” (light) and “graphé” (drawing), together meaning “drawing with light.” Inspired by this definition and my fondness for analog photography, I use my work as a manifestation of the fascinating optic physics behind each photo.
Because of light’s fluid and evasive nature, it can be held and adapted to create different impressions of mood, insight, and fantasy. My work is an attempt to direct that fluidity into form and frame by incorporating kinetic photography, experimental camera techniques, and other darkroom methods.
This project is influenced by the embracing of contradiction—between construct and aura, symbolism and surrealism—while still tethering the line between reality and unreality.
