The images in “Traveling Light” bring together an eclectic set of influences, ranging from the geometries of constructivism to color field. After collecting an assortment of prisms and lenses, I became interested in investigating how light and color traveled across them. One- to two-inch optical objects were layered and stacked at angles to capture light wrapping around form, while gels created washes of color in the background. Chromatic geometries emerged from the planes and lines of color. The images were produced in-camera and follow in the lineage of experimental studies exploring the most elemental components of photographic processes: light and lenses.
