English photographer Martin Kimbell utilized LEDs attached to hoops and long exposure techniques to create airborne light forms that resemble that of a otherworldly spacecraft. He hurls the LED hoops in the air, resulting in light twists that look like tornadoes. Kimbell’s series is inspired by the works of Arizona-based photographer Stu Jenks who used light and fire to create similar tornado-looking light forms.
The photographer explains in an interview: “What I love about light painting is that it gives me a level of control and creative freedom which is rare in most forms of photography. Through the adding of different light patterns, or by illuminating it differently, I can completely transform the scene.”
