Jan Leonardo Wöllert: The Light Art Magician

In 2011 Deutsche Welle – Germany’s international broadcaster recorded a fascenating short documentary on German fine art and light photographer Jan Leonardo Wöllert. Although  Wöllert started his career by specializing in nighttime pictures he has since shifted his focus to the field of light art performance photography.

One of the most interesting things about Wöllert’s work is that his pictures are all made entirely without the use of Photoshop or any other editing software. Together with co-pioneer Joerg Miedza, Wöllert has published a book (in German) explaining the technique and featuring spectacular shots.
