These light painting photographs are not 'images' in the traditional sense.
They are not representative of any specific
They are simply about light the medium of a camera.
The images you see here have much more in common with the abstractions of Rothko, Flavin, or Pollock than with traditional photographs.
I am striving to take the viewer and myself to terra un carta, uncharted territory, to a place where color and design elicit their own response.
These images are not visible to the human eye in real time and space.
But by expanding time, a characteristic unique to still photographs.
It is only through the extended exposure of a single frame that the light recorded becomes visible in these compositions.
I cannot tell you what these images are 'about.'
If there's no mystery to my art, then I'm not likely to consider it art,
My art is about nothing, and everything.
It's the mystery, the beauty that drives us.
I hope that you enjoy your experience.
About The Artist and light painting a new recent art movement in photography
Peter Anger splashes just light onto film and camera sensors, using the camera as his canvas.
The result : images that are at once modern, and timeless, postcards from an unexplored world.

The Zion collection are the best images I've made of the Zion environment, a place once called the 'Valley of a Thousand Rainbows',
and now called the Colorado Plateau, or the Columbia.
I like mystery and simplicity in my abstract works if there's not mystery to the image, I'm not likely to be very interested in the image.
If you look close at the world it gives you the opportunity to reflect, daydream, a meditative moment if you will?
The Zion images of nature give one the opportunity reflect upon a small abstract detail of nature, a place where I now live.
