Vibrant Kaleidosopic Light Paintings Created in Camera

Neon whirls and electric sparks take over these exciting works of art inspired by Dr. Seuss, M.C. Escher, comic books and myriad geometric designs and patterns. It is spellbound by the magical results of a lengthy exposure and the manipulation of several light sources, photographer Jeremy Jackson (aka Tacky) works almost absolutely in light painting. He’s the resident of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, and he makes kaleidoscopic light paintings. Since 2008, Jackson spends most of his time waving lights in front of his camera, shooting on 35mm film as well as digital. All of Jackson's elaborate, kaleidoscopic pictures are constructed in camera without the use of Photoshop, except for an occasional rotation or crop. For this method, light is the brush and the environment is the canvas determined by space and time. Jackson perceives infinite potential in this medium. He proclaims, "The techniques are infinite. The world is at your canvas. Anything you can visualize can be painted in a million different ways. Making his living from workshops on light painting, Jackson makes all his photos easily available for download because he believes that the art itself should be free to the public.
