Light artist crush: Adam Ekberg

Photographer Adam Ekberg caught my eye, as his photographs are closely tied to lighting and space. Below are a few of his photographs and links to his personal website where you can see more.

From his website, “In calculated performances that intersect with photography’s documentary potential, I explore ephemeral occurrences. Making such humble events happen is alchemy of sorts, the transformation of the mundane into the poignant. Within the constructed images, I reposition specific celebratory iconography to create minor spectacles. My process requires detailed and elaborate production outside the photographic frame so that what appears within the frame implies simplicity and straightforwardness. It is important to me that these constructions actually exist in the world, if only for the moment in which the photograph is made.”
