A new addition to my highly experimental project "Pure Photography: Photography is "drawing with light". Pure photography means that the light itself, its quality (= color) and/or its quantity (= brightness) creates an abstract image on a light-sensitive medium (film or camera chip) without beeing affected by a subject from the human world of experience or, as the Bauhaus Master L. Moholy-Nagy wrote in 1927, the light-sensitive plate fixes the light modelled by mirrors, lenses or transparent crystals etc. - In this experimental microphotographic project the aim is not the the imaging of an object, but rather an optically active sample (pinhole, slit, grating, opaque stop, spherical lens etc.) is used to modulate the light beam normally used to create a magnified image of a microscopic object. Thus, I study the artistic possibilities of pure photography using the physics of light microscopy. - We see the circular trace produced by a rotating microscopic pinhole passing blue light

Jos Letschert Bernd, it is a very ingenious and interesting process you are explaining, photography without the usual existence of an object. Of course, light is an object, but not in the sense as we normally understand it. Moholy-Nagy indeed can be seen as a kind of founding father,no object, often not even a camera, just the reflection of light. He had a fundamental influence on painting, painting without pigments, painting with light. Your pure photography series are very valuable steps in the process of emancipation of photography, besides that valuable steps too into the aesthetic quest of art.
