NYC-based photographer Lucea Spinelli does something amazing with light in her photographs, she paints with it. Using empty park benches and swings as her backdrop Spinelli creates waves of animated light and pathways that mimic fireflies, rainbows and even ghostly human figures. The GIFs are created by taking multiple long exposure shots of the light to create the streak effect. These are then edited in post to become the soothing and relaxing animations you see below.
