"When it comes to light illustrations, Darren Pearson (@dariustwin) plays both photographer and magician, achieving a how-did-he-do-it aesthetic by merging surrealism with technological prowess. “I just like looking at the back of the camera and not knowing what’s going to appear,” says the 31-year-old Los Angeles-based artist, who creates his dreamy, hallucinatory photos using long exposure, a tripod, and a LED light he fashions himself. “If it appears way better than what I was thinking, that’s like, ah! That’s a victory!” Darren began exploring light-work eight years ago after spotting a long exposure photo of Pablo Picasso taken by LIFE magazine photographer Gjon Mili in 1949. In it, the Spanish painter stands shirtless while wielding a light that traces a path in the air. “I was like, ‘What the heck is this?’” says Darren. “It kind of blew my mind.” Photo by @dariustwin" By instagram on Instagram.
