These photos by Reuben Wu are incredible. As part of his project Lux Noctis, Wu flew drones in circles around mountain peaks and took long-exposure photos, creating incredible images of haloed stone and highlighted mountain tops. Wu gave an interview to Colossal about his interest in what he dubs ‘zero-trace’ land art:
Recently Wu has evolved his process of working with the drones to form light paths above topographical peaks in the mountainous terrain. “I see it as a kind of ‘zero trace’ version of land art where the environment remains untouched by the artist, and at the same time is presented in a sublime way which speaks to 19th century Romantic painting and science and fictional imagery,” said Wu to Colossal.
