Light Dots: Photography that explores the light in dark empty spaces

In his series Light Dots, Israeli photographer Lior Glaichman deals with dark empty spaces where the only way for the viewer to escape it is by looking at the light and travelling with it to an imaginary exit.

He explains: "These points and lines of light are firstly used as an optimistic notion. They lead the viewer by the eyes, and then by his thoughts and feelings. In the journey there are questions that concern the viewer: Is it real? Is it fake? After all, the image looks organised and precise, symmetrical, and sometimes laboratory. My purpose is to challenge the viewer standing in front of the photograph. In my photographs, I hope to make the viewer feel as I had when I first saw those spaces for the first time."

Glaichman is a professional photographer, working in-house for a leading global metalworking company and during his spare time he loves to teach photography as a private mentor.

He adds: "Photography to me is a way of expression and life. With photography, I can step into a silent and peaceful dimension; one that is so far from the loud, daily reality. I truly enjoy and absorb the concentration it takes in building the composition, and the constant lookout for beautiful light that will lead the viewer and me."
