Patrick Rochon recently published an interesting project mixing dance, martial art and light painting. The experience helped him discover and explore a deeper meaning behind this popular type of photography; check out what he has to say about it:
“Getting to the essence of what I do,
I now understand that light painting is above all, movement.
To me, it is a mix of dancing and martial arts.
Light moves everywhere all the time.
Our bodies are emitting light
and expressing something subtle but important.
We must see it and understand it.
We must reveal it’s secrets and knowledge.
I believe it is a key connected to our consciousness.
The light painting KATA
is the expression of our light and
the trace we leave behind.”
These photos were all taken with a Nikon D600 and the results are stunning! What do you think?
