Kaalam–Light Calligraphy

light06

Kaalam, aka Julien Breton, uses long exposure photography for a different effect from Bill Wadman (my last post). He takes advantage of the fact that bright lights show up much more clearly than their surroundings. He uses light wands to draw in the air before a camera. The result–an ephemeral calligraphy that exists only when a long span of time is viewed simultaneously.
