HE EXPERTLY MANOEUVRES LIGHT IN HIS ART INSTALLATIONS.
Finnish artist Janne Parviainen paints and draws with light without the use of any technology tricks. No Photoshop. No enhanced colours or filters. Just long exposure and slight of hand. "The idea of the art form is not to use any post production to the photo at all, all photos should be straight from the camera,” Parviainen explains. “While the camera is exposing the area of the photo can be used as a canvas by moving different lights in it, as if drawing or painting to it.” The exposure times used vary from a few seconds to hours, depending on the desired effect. Parviainen uses coloured strobes, flash lights, light toys, or tools especially engineered for light painting to create his works.
Parviainen often uses human forms in his photos, evoking ghostly light creatures and skeletons made of light. He has traced entire rooms with LED light to create topographic maps of the space.
