Alan Jaras’ “Caustics” – Bending, Twisting, Broken Light

My wonderful wife sent me a link to a new blog I can read called My Modern Met – the link was to light artist Alan Jaras’ work with what he calls “caustics” – patterns of light that are cast by sending a beam of light through a plastic form that has texture and shape.  The light cast through the plastic material is then captured directly onto 35mm film by taking away the lens and putting the transparent plastic in its place.  Pretty cool, huh?

Check out these images from Alan Jaras – and check out his Flickr page.  He’s “Reciprocity” on Flickr.  Great work, Alan!

Just an FYI – none of these images are digitally altered.  All naturale, baby.
