Light capsules

They say that photographers work with light. And it's true. We, through our lenses, direct, orient, manipulate light towards a light-sensitive surface. Before that surface was analog, now it is digital.

But what if we forget about the lenses and let the light flood in freely on that sensitive surface? That is what I have tried in these 'light capsules'. We simply put the light sensitive material in a transparent container and let the light do the rest.

These 'light capsules' are composed of gelatin, pigment, potassium dichromate, glass and light, lots of light.
