Collaborations in Light with Kelly Nicolaisen

Since Man Ray's discovery of it in the '30s, "light painting" has been an interesting side note in the history of photography. The ability to, in essence, combine the skills of a painter with that of a photographer, have led to some interesting historical collaborations, Picasso's centaurs Gjon Mili in the '50s immediately spring to mind for instance. Bay Area photographer Kelly Nicolaisen currently has a cool show up at 111 Minna Gallery in San Francisco, where she explores the light painting field with a variety of new contemporary artists. Hi-Fructose fave Mars-1 has participated alongside a variety of some new favorites of ours such as Charmaine Olivia, Kelly Allen and more. Get a look at several of the collaborative works after the jump.
