of my self set challenge to share the light sculptures of Vivid Sydney 2012 not only as I experienced them but also with a view to sharing the artists work as I interpreted it through my camera. It really has been quite a challenge to make a series of original pictures, using the camera to edit the scene with differentness lenses, exposures (time and light), angles and perspective - all in the hope that the feeling of each individual work comes through; a way of looking that presents the art work with the style pop and dash it very definitely had and the atmosphere created by this beautiful Vivid Sydney event.
I also took the time to photograph the 'light posts' that have the names of the Art Works and the Artists so I can provide the relevant details to credit the artworks you are viewing on the blog (though I missed a couple so any help much appreciated); because its not just about pretty lights and pictures its also about the people, the artists who had the inspiration to make the work for us all to enjoy.
I had a wonderful time during all three of my visits to Vivid Sydney and I have also enjoyed working on the pictures I made, selecting and editing them to bring out the best of my vision for the artists works. While Vivid may have been conceived as a way to bring life into the city during cold dark (wet) of winter - and it has done that extremely well indeed; its not just a pretty light show, it really is a massive massive art exhibition. An exhibition that engages, excites, and encourages art interaction on a scale and at a level I have never seen before. Congratulations to all the artists and organizers involved for creating a truly stunning and exciting event.
