creative photography

Artist Fabian Oefner‘s aim is to present the unseen and poetic facets of our natural world and to invite us to stop for a moment and appreciate the magic that constantly surrounds us.

Showcased here is Fabian’s series called Nebulae. It’s not what you think it is. He says,

What might look like a giant nebula or a distant galaxy at first glance, is in reality the glowing ends of a fibre glass lamp. 

 
The images were created by taking long-time exposures of several fibre glass lamps (exactly, those ugly-looking lamps, that were extremely popular in the 90`s) moving around in a darkened room. Afterwards, severeal images were multiplied in photoshop to achieve the density of such a structure. 
What I personally like about this project is how you can create an illusionist space with such simple means, that are familiar to everybody.
