Out of Light

This series catalogs a set of experimental portrait sessions photographed during 2014. The sessions used long exposures and static light to capture portraits of people moving through and enveloped with light. Photographed using both digital and film formats, each subject was instructed to empty their minds and meditate on something unique and personal to them. Once they indicated that they had found their point of focus, I would begin their timed portrait.  The portraits that emerged show a range and depth of emotion that was unexpected and truly uplifting. 


This series was apart of the artist works on display during the 2015 Spring River Arts Stroll in Asheville, NC.

White light is a product of all visibly perceivable light being viewed simultaneously However, the human eye actual views color in negative. So while your mind believes you are viewing the culmination of everything you are in fact viewing the absence of it.
