Photographer Makes Light Appear to Dance on Its Own

Photography By

Twenty-four-year-old photographer Daniel Barreto likes to experiment with light. In his video, entitled “Ignite,” abstract light-shapes dance within the frame like ghosts. Surprisingly, the film features neither animation nor digital manipulation; each frame is actually a long-exposure photo, hundreds of which were taken to produce the film. The Boston-based artist used LED lights to create the apparition-like effect. Watch the film below, and learn more about Barreto’s process here.
