I don’t have a philosophy. I have a camera.
We are exploring new modalities of creative photography through robotics and long-exposure photography. Using a robotic arm, a light source is carried through precise movements in front of a camera. Photographic compositions are recorded as images of volumetric light. Robotic light “painting” can also be inverted: the camera is moved via the arm to create an image “painted” with environmental light. Finally, adding real-time sensor input to the moving arm and programming it to explore the physical space around objects can reveal immaterial fields like radio waves, magnetic fields, and heat flows.

Fluorescence image of an anther from an Arabidopsis thaliana transgenic plant producing a mitochondria-targeted GFP specifically in the tapetum. The red fluorescence is the auto-fluorescence of chlorophyll, the green fluorescence corresponds to GFP.
I used to think the worst thing in life was to end up all alone. It’s not. The worst thing in life is to end up with people who make you feel all alone.

Reflections From Above is a complex photo series in which thousands of New York City windows and lights merge together into unique abstract formations. To capture the fascinating and symmetrical perspectives, photographer Donna Dotan focuses her camera down from the tops of large skyscrapers and uses long exposures to capture the action below.
