The Colors Of Light Art Performance Photography

A descendant of light drawing or light graffiti, light art performance photography (LAPP) is a one-shot time bulb exposure capturing an entire performance of movement traced with colorful light.

LAPP originates on a real-time basis in front of the camera. Created between opening and closing the shutter. The pictures shown here are in each case one single photo… With especially developed light and luminous tools they are projected on the sensor. Within a performance, form and colour by light arrange such complicated figures and light forms.

Images from LAPP.
