This exhibition of photographic works, LTISL 17, 2013, published by the Canadian Photographic Portfolio Society (CPPS), highlights the launch of a new commission by Jessica Eaton. Acclaimed for her innovative experiments in colour photography, Eaton applies unique analog techniques to manipulate properties of light. In her vibrant images she pushes the rhetoric of abstraction to provoke questions about perceptual experience. The photographs in this new series are based on light bending through glass prisms. They allude to photography as a process of drawing with light, specifically Berenice Abbott’s The Science Pictures.
