One Beam of Light is a global photographic project based on the creative use of light. We asked the participants to submit stunning and inspirational photographs that begin with a single source of light – light stripped to its barest, minimum essential. The images are intended to allow entrants to show the world the versatility of one beam of light, its inherent beauty and their ability to manipulate it. The images demonstrate the entrants passion for the medium of light.
The images were curated by a guest panel of lighting designers and visionaries including Terence Woodgate, Keith Bradshaw of Speirs and Major, Matt Clark of UVA and Gerd Pfarre to form a pop-up touring exhibition. The exhibition of the top 31 opened at the ICA in London on the 15th April with a special installation from GNI Projects. A newspaper of the shortlisted images accompanied the event.
The project has being made possible through the generous support of Concord Lighting.
This initiative is about creating an opportunity for us to work in a truly collective way and to spread the word about light to a wider audience. Thanks to all participants who took part and provided us with an inspired image so we could show the world what light can do.... More details available on the website: www.onebeamoflight.com
