Travelling light / by Alex Bamford

 

Xiao Yang is the most committed light painter I know. Based in Beijing, she regularly travels the thousands of miles to Eastern Europe in search of forgotten Communist monuments and architecture.

Xiao photographs them at night, often in the most inhospitable surroundings and weather. using long exposures, painting the structures with light using a torch and coloured gels to give them new life.
