Beautifully Lit Urban Decay

Light graffiti generally consists of some neat swirls and patterns of light in front of the camera, but artist TigTab has a much more complex process that results in infinitely more fascinating creations. By using stencils placed on light boxes and an incredibly slow shutter speed, she can create masterpieces like the one above, pieces that often take up to four hours to complete.

Her pictures generally involve run down or abandoned locations being incorporated into a surreally stunning landscape. “I find beauty in decay – those abandoned and forgotten places all around us. By bringing light into the darkness of each space, it fills that space for a moment in time, and highlights both their beauty and impermanence," she said in an interview with Odd Stuff Magazine.
