Stephen Orlando (previously here and here) captures traces of movement through time, securing LED lights to rowing paddles and even violin bows. The result is a technicolor landscape—curved patterns hovering just above the water’s edge in his newest group of lake and ocean-side imagery. Recently the Canadian-based photographer has produced photos in his home province of Ontario, as well as around Newfoundland and next to Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s Floating Piers this summer in Italy. You can see more of Orlando’s time-based light experiments on his Instagram and Facebook.
