While exploring the idea of other worlds and doorways into them it easy to go for the literary side to look for the want to escape to other more exciting worlds like in The Chronicles of Narnia or cinema and the adaptation of treasure island into disneys treasure planet. However I managed to stumble upon the photographic work of Denis Smith:
” The Ball of Light is created in a single exposure by swinging lights around. There is no “Photoshop” here at all. It is super challenging, and certainly adds a new dimension to long exposure photography.”
In the documentary Smith talks about people creating stories about them or how stories evolve through the process of creating the images. As well as the idea of them being a portal into other times; creating a link between past and present or even between worlds.
I think these are really unique and awe inspiring. Giving something new to the landscapes and photographic shots we are used to experiencing.
