British artist Alan Jaras turns light into awesome works of art. A majority of the works are analogue images of the refraction patterns from a beam of light passing through a transparent object (Jaras uses pieces of textured glass). The image is captured directly on to 35mm film, no camera lens is used (a photogram using film instead of photographic paper), the transparent object replaces the lens. Jaras introduces color by placing specially prepared colored filters directly in the light beam. “These images have not been computer generated or color treated. The colors you see are a faithful reproduction of those captured on film,” says Jaras.

    Uh, no. Film is still dead. You can do the same thing with a digital sensor and without the need for toxic chemicals.

    Hey Mulling: Digital photography still requires toxic chemicals — they’re just diplaced. Unless you’ve got a computer & digital back that were organically gown in a field somewhere …
    Exquisite shots though. I wanna go look at them in a dark room while listening to “Inna Gadda Davida” on vinyl!

    How do you direct the beam of light? Have you used a laser pointer? I’d like to try this.

    @mullingitover — no you can’t do the same thing. You can do a similar thing, but it by no means the same. A digital sensor has an entirely different range of response because there is a different transduction element. I also greatly admire things people do playing with digital scanners but there is something amazing about the massively parallel quality of an array of a billion or so crystals of silver, and the hundreds of different dye molecules which can be bound to them.

    If you’re worried about the toxic chemicals generated by art photography, then I encourage you to look arround the world a little because there are real problems awaiting your attention.

    Artists deserve to make a living, so set your prices and maintain a standard.
    One of the simplest that I have come across and still use to this day
    is the power of happiness. If you want the relationship to grow and
    continue to marriage, you need to be with him for love and respect.
