Light Painting on Former Nazi-Occupied Bunkers

David Gilliver shows us the Channel Island of Guernsey like we've never seen it before! Using a customized photography technique that he learned through years of experimentation, Gilliver lights up the German built bunkers that were once occupied by Nazi forces in World War II.

The 31-year-old creates bright light orbs by fixing LED lights onto a man-made contraption that attaches to a drill, which makes them rotate in circles. He also has a collection of light sabers and glow sticks that he uses as paintbrushes.

In each image, Gilliver is actually present the whole time the photograph is being taken, but he prefers to remain invisible. “I dress in black or very dark clothing to help minimize the chances of being made visible to the camera during the shoot,” he expalins. “Once the camera has started taking the shot – which can last up to 30 minutes – I walk into the picture frame and begin adding the light to the photograph.”
