For new viewers: These are refraction patterns or ‘caustics’ formed by a light beam passing through a shaped and textured plastic form. The pattern is captured directly on to 35mm film by removing the camera lens and putting the transparent object in its place. The processed film is digitally scanned for uploading. Please note these are not computer generated images but a true analogue of the way light is refracted by the objects I create.

Like this one a lot – great abstract feel to it, and it’s original and beautifully composed.

Sophie has a good eye for interesting and colourful compositions. So many greens for something you would expect to be uniform – almost plant-like.
