Photographer Michael Taylor says: “My aim is to let light reveal itself.” Hence his Luminescence series, which investigates light using electroluminescent wire, and is the first in the a number of his explorations.
The technical details, are: “A current is passed through a copper wire causing the surrounding phosphor coating to emit light.
“The wire was wrapped around/within custom-made costumes worn by the model. The model’s movements were then recorded, introducing a kinetic element.
“Images were also made using opaque and transparent mannequins.”
