Luminaries: 20 Light Graffiti Artists & Photographers

Light graffiti is uniquely ephemeral and inextricably intertwined with the art of photography, sometimes even invisible to the naked eye and apparent only when captured on film. It is impermanent and its manifestations range from comical to sublime. The work of these twenty light graffiti artists spans the spectrum from humorously playful to deeply moving with everything in between.

The artists themselves, though their traces are seen in every shot, are rarely visible in the finished work. Sometimes they or other people feature in the work but mostly what can be seen is the after-effect of their creations, a time-lapse snapshot that condenses space and time into a single beautiful moment.
