Light Bulbs

From the press release for the 2003 exhibition Light / Time / Motion. Courtesy Claremont Graduate University.

…Allen’s Light Bulbs series takes the photographic study of light directly to the source. These minimal compositions are contemplations of the nature of photography itself – its relationship to time, space, movement and light. By training his camera on the light source rather than reflected light from a secondary subject, Allen reduces the photographic act to a direct exchange between transmitter (bulb) and receiver (camera).
