Neon is a series of images representative of my first explorations with Sergei Prokudin-Gorsky’s three-color method of photography, which I then went on to use and expand upon in CHANNELS. The images are primarily concerned with sleepy, small-town businesses at night, with a particular focus on the neon signs in the window. I found the glow of the bent glass bulbs to feel so much more real and present through the multi-exposure process than through other traditional means of photography, and gravitated to it instantly. Echoing the colors of these vibrant letterforms, the streaks of car headlights and taillights are tinted as they blur across individual color channel exposures.
