Light Painting World Alliance - Light is Paint, Night is Canvas

Lights, Camera.......................


These photographs are not 'images' in the traditional sense. They are not representative of any specific        "what"

They are simply about light the medium of a camera.

The images you see here have much more in common with the abstractions of Rothko, Flavin, or Pollock than with traditional photographs.

I am striving to take the viewer and myself to terra uncarta, uncharted territory, to a place where color and design elicit their own response.

These images are not visible to the human eye in real time or space. But by expanding time , a characteristic unique to still photographs.

It is only through the extended exposure of a single frame that the light becomes visible in these compositions.

I cannot tell you what these images are 'about.'

They are about nothing, and everything.

The physical reality of this art is something quite different from the personal experience of it.

I hope that you enjoy your experience.




About The Artist


     Peter Anger splashes light onto film and camera sensors, using the camera as his canvas.

The result : images that are at once modern and timeless,

postcards from an unexplored world.

I have been making light paintings since ~1980~
