Patrick Rochon - Fine Art Photography
I’m a Light Painter.
I mainly use photography and video to capture the movement I create with lights. I started moving lights, combined with photography doing long exposure in the dark, in 1992. In 1999 I started creating videos and performances with lights. Then with friends we created a multimedia group and we built costumes of lights. Using video feedback, we performed by light-painting on a giant screen creating a new visual experience.
I‚„m from Montreal, Canada and I‚„ve been living in New York, Paris and Tokyo for the last 15 years.
IN COMPLETE DARKNESS WITH THE CAMERA SHUTTER OPEN.YOU MOVE LIGHTS ON AND AROUND A SUBJECT WITH PEN LIGHTS, FLASH LIGHTS OR ANYTHING THAT EMITS LIGHT.FOR A SINGLE TAKE, EXPOSURE TIMES CAN VARY BETWEEN 5 SECONDS TO 30 MINUTES.
THE IMAGES IN THIS COLLECTION ARE EXACTLY WHAT WAS RECORDED ON THE FILM AT THE TIME OF THE SHOOT. NO COMPUTER EFFECTS OR DIGITAL.
