The Poetry of Light Movement was a response that John Atkins made in 2013 to formally taught photography and photographic art, based on his insight into the Poetry of Light.
“I believe we harness the dynamics of boundless light, capture a brief moment, give it form, give it structure, give it rhythm.
We are ‘lightsmiths,’ and our work is the ‘Poetry of Light.’
Our perception of the real and virtual world is constantly changing as new
technologies generate a symbiotic relationship between the two seemingly
Art too, and its perception, is constantly changing.
To creatively go beyond these ever-changing boundaries of perception is the quest of every photographic artist.
As individual visual artists, we need to belong to a creative community in order to discuss our ideas about the direction this art form should take, and be able to share our work with a wider audience.”
