Bathing in Ultraviolet light
Typically, when I pick up my camera I’m shooting in natural or available light. Additionally, many shoots lead me into my studio, under the bright lights of the strobes.
Last year I began looking for alternative ways to paint with light. I started reading about ultraviolet, or black light. Much of the in-depth science of how the light waves behave was certainly lost on me, but I feel I absorbed at least enough to proceed.
In my UV series, I attempted to create photographs that reveal a human-alien hybrid. Something that we can relate to on some levels and gaze upon with curious eyes on another.
I can’t help but wonder if we are alone in the universe.
If there is life beyond our tiny blue dot, what will it look like?
