Visible Light series by Fawn Rogers is photographs created as natural light projects through purified water. Each image represents just a few millimeters of light, substantially enlarged. The works are not color edited.
"Several years ago, during a period of deep depression, I was in a Buddhist monastery in Northern Thailand, where I abstained from reading, writing, or doing anything other than practice to be present. After 30 days of silence, I began to have fantastic dreams, and dreamt of an entirely new spectrum, filled with different colors than I had ever experienced. When I awoke, I began using my eyes in a new way, to experience sight more fully, and could see a profusion of color in everything around me. I felt like a child exploring new content. As a result, I felt inspired to create something bright, serene, and connected to nature.
These works capture what I found."

"Like his contemporary Eadweard Muybridge, Marey, a physiologist, was interested in the science of human movement. By 1882, he had developed a single camera method that he called chronophotography, which allowed him to make images of human and animal movement. His camera was the forerunner of the motion picture camera.
Marey’s chronophotographs were some of the first images to illustrate the exact process of body movement.”
