Abstract Photographs Artfully Present Interesting Study of Glass, Light

Belfast-based fine art photographer Michael Taylor has a great new series that quite simply involves a bit of photographic silver gelatin paper and various glass objects placed on top. Does this method sound vaguely familiar to anyone, dear readers? I’ll give you this hint.

Says the creative about his latest work, the series “Refraction: New Abstract Photography of Light”:
Refraction resulted from an experimental investigation into the refraction of sunlight through glass using sunlight and photographic silver gelatin paper. Many effects of light occurred simultaneously, but the most prominent was the refraction of light through the various glass objects. I sought to document and interpret purely formal qualities of light. Hidden lines and curves and other new ‘light objects’ were revealed by strong sunlight. Resulting images are left as negatives resembling X Rays, a symbolic gesture towards the interaction of science and art. Light revealed the invisible.
