ARTISTIC APPROACH
Light graffitist and photographer Vicki DaSilva creates light compositions for subject or site-specific performances.
One of the initiators of light graffiti photography in the 1980s, Vicki DaSilva utilizes a photographic technique based on long-time exposure whose time of execution may vary from minutes to several hours per photograph.
Her abstract compositions are usually related to architecture, urban and natural landscapes as well as on text-based concepts that suggest political messages.
