The Icons series was loosely inspired by the print making work of Andy Warhol. While looking at some prints of Mr. Warhol in 2011, I wondered if I could replicate a print making process working with the medium of light instead of ink. I began working on my light print making process in late 2011 and have been developing it ever since. The images in the Icons series are the first “Light Prints” ever created.
All of the images in the “Icons” series are un-edited light painting photographs. They are painted with handheld light sources and completely created in one single photographic exposure. All the Icons are SOOC (Straight Out Of Camera) with the exception of a planned square crop and removal of a few burnt pixels and dust specs for printing purposes. Each Icon has 5 images in the series, each slightly different from one another.
