I've recently became aqquainted with the work of Jessica Eaton. As you may know I have a thing for light and colors and prisms, Her work is in experimentation of technical and conceptual beauty. In her latest Cubes "For Albers and Lewitt" she focuses on the "discrepancy between physical fact and psychic effect," Eaton's images add "multiple exposures and colored lights" to plain, monochromatic cubes to create enchanting graphics. With a 4x5 camera, she starts with white, black and gray cubes, then shoots them under red, green and blue gels to capture the amazing colors we see here. Her only inspires me more to dewll in this field of experimental photography. You can check her tumblr and stuff she likes.

“Her work explores what photography is and can be, looking at the themes of light, time and spatial relations. Creating images of geometry and colour that play with the viewers perceptions, all Eaton’s images are created in-camera. No post at all. Which is pretty impressive, especially with the photographs toward the bottom of this page – undoubted homages to Josef Albers and Victor Vasarely - a couple of which look almost entirely computer-generated. The experimental colour photographic work of James Welling seems to have spurred a generation of young photographers to experiment with what can be achieved with the medium, and Eaton is pushing things in an interesting direction, along with peers such as Caleb Charland and Niall McClelland. When she works, she has no clear defined final image in mind when she begins each series, instead setting out with an idea of what the outcome may be, but going with the flow. As she says, “each time I shoot, the results influence the next step. I often like to leave a lot of space for accidents to happen and am most satisfied with the work when it takes on a life of its own.” It seems that she is only just beginning to touch on what can be achieved, and we’re going to watch her evolution with interest.” – via Field of Vision
