Halloran1

By Patrick Appel
A description of photographer Lia Halloran's work:

Light is used to form the drawing line while Halloran skateboards at night through different venues. The resulting images are each a trajectory of the artist’s movements over time. The photographs pair urban environments with lines of light which behave as physical objects or break apart into flurries of abstraction.

Halloran's use of the long-exposure reminds me of Hiroshi Sugimoto's photographs of movie screens, where the exposure was the length of the movie. Another image of Halloran's after the jump:
