Black holes

A black hole is formed when a big bright star (supernova) has burned out. The star collapses to an extreme compact mass, with extreme gravitational strength. The gravity of the collapsed star and its extreme compact mass is so strong, that it prevents anything, including light, from escaping.

When light is not reflected, all we see is a deep black shadow, a 'hole'. This is the reason a black hole in space is called this way.

The basis of photography - registrating light and shadow - has a lot in common with this astrophysical phenomena. So I applied this thesis "photographing regions in spacetime, where light is not reflected" in common sceneries.

The project will be continued in 2015.
