The International Day of Light is a global initiative that provides an annual focal point for the continued appreciation of light and the role it plays in science, culture and art, education, and sustainable development, and in fields as diverse as medicine, communications, and energy. The broad theme of light allows for many different sectors of society to participate in activities that demonstrates how science, technology, art and culture can help achieve the goals of UNESCO – education, equality and peace.
Hartranft Lighting Design marks the occasion with a new gallery, Search Light. We hope you enjoy a peek at the light we found in our own archives.
We take many more photos than a generation ago. We accumulate these images in growing databases in our various digital devices and cloud storage. While digital photography has changed the way we create, accumulate, and store images, the essential element of photos remains the same: Light.
The ways we capture, retrieve and share these images have also changed how we interact with them. For fun, we used the search term "light" in our own photo collections and share them in our gallery Search Light, playing with shapes, form, lines, color, etc. We are, after all, lighting designers.
