Photographer Vitor Schietti’s artwork is a celebration of life, light and movement

For Brazil-based photographer Vitor Schietti, art is not static; it is mobile, dynamic and constantly changing. His latest collection known as Impermanent Sculptures is a celebration of life and energy, as it showcases the stunning movement of light falling like rain from the branches and trunks of trees and, flowing like water from the sprinklers. To create his artwork, Schietti relies on long-exposure photography, and in-camera light painting, to capture the brilliance of fireworks, set against both rural and urban backgrounds. Each of these photos is a combination of as many as 12 shots, thus accentuating the almost-ethereal beauty of the lightworks. Speaking about his creations, the artist said:

The series is the result of several years of research on long exposure photography, and the usage of ND filters was vital to find a perfect balance between the fading twilight and the brightness of the fireworks. Only a few attempts were allowed per day, since the time frame during which this balance is possible is very narrow (30 to 50 minutes). The Brazilian central plateau, in a kind of savanna called “Cerrado” was the scenery for most of these experimentations. The margins of the lake Paranoa, the streets and some iconic monuments from Brasilia were also locations for some of the light paintings. It’s important to say the series is an ongoing process, and more will follow in the coming year or so.
