I was really blown away by these images created by the light artists Jan Wöllert and Jörg Miedza.  Using a long exposure and LED lights, the duo experimented with Light Art Performance Photography (LAPP-PRO) to create fantastic ‘light paintings’.

The team can spend months preparing for each performance, which is always recorded in a single photographic shot.

The artists credit the development of the movement to when Wöllert was once locked in a warehouse overnight with nothing but a camera and an LED light for company (we don’t know why). While keeping himself occupied, the 39-year-old realized the potential of long exposure and light performance.

“I didn’t realise I would be shut in but fortunately I had my tools. I had to wait until the next morning before I could sneak out. If it wasn’t for that then this art movement might never have started,” he said.
