Vitor Schietti was born in Brazil in 1986, and has a degree in Social Communication through the University of Brasilia.In Schietti’s Impermanent Sculptures, thick treetops and branches are swollen with light that appears to drip down in incandescent rays.Each photograph frames the nighttime scenes in a dreamy, energetic manner as the glowing beams both outline and obscure the existing landscapes.Schietti worked with fireworks and long-exposure photography to illuminate the branches and stems of trees in his native Brazil.The photos are a mixture of in-camera light painting, and a bit of post-processing that can combine up to 12 shots into a final image. The series is the result of several years of research on long exposure photography, and the usage of ND filters was vital to find a perfect balance between the fading twilight and the brightness of the fireworks.
“By creating these images, which I refer to as Impermanent Sculptures, I draw the viewers attention to abstract concepts taking place in real environments. Concepts to be interpreted and explored freely by whomever this work reaches,” Schietti says. “To paint with light in a three-dimensional space is to bring one’s thoughts from unconscious realms and ancient symbols into existence and turn them into something intriguing, yet beautiful and integrated with the landscape.”More of Vitor Schietti‘s amazing photography can be found at https://schiettifotografia.com/ and https://theinspirationgrid.com/impermanent-sculptures-photos-by-vitor-schietti/.
