The Luminosity of Shadows: Peter Maarseveen
During this time of isolation, Peter Maarseveen has documented the landscape of his backyard using an alternative photographic technique from the 1800’s called Lumen Prints, as well as using a homemade 20 x 24-inch camera to create larger than life images of the plants that surrounded him everyday.
The lumen print technique uses the sun as the light source, leaving a shadow print of nature. There is no digital involvement in either process, instead, The Luminosity of Shadows embrace slow and ephemeral processes, reveling in the imperfections of the images created unlike the highly edited landscape photography that exists today.
