Painting portraits with torches… Fabrice Wittner’s Enlightened Souls.

ImageSo in a few months’ time I shall be off to New Zealand, thanks to the Louisa Ann Ryland travel scholarship! My first destination is going to be Christchurch which has recently been devastated by earthquakes costing the lives of 181 people and $30 billion in damages. 

French photographer Fabrice Wittner has been commemorating Christchurch’s losses through his lightpainting series: Enlightened Souls. Wittner combines light painting techniques, human sized stencils and long exposure photography to create these poetic yet haunting images.

After making the first Enlightened Souls series in New Zealand, Wittner travelled to Hanoi, Vietnam; his latest light stencils bring children from rural Vietnamese villages into the capital.  

Pretty amazing stuff and without that filthy photoshopping!
