mno-buttonaha1Brian Hart’s photographic technique of “light drawing” explores his subjects in a unique way. Hart begins with a pitch black environment and a miniscule light source When he’s finished, his images reveal delicate trails of light, creating work that’s half photograph, half drawing.

In his newest project, Hart combines a series of exposures–sometimes more than 200–to create a single composite image. The resulting work is electric.
