Here’s a completely different sort of project: refractography. Not long ago, while browsing a photo-sharing website, we bumped into this new (to us) form of photo abstraction. Visually exciting, with multi-colored patterns of bending and blending light, refractographs—like Rob Turney’s, above—are easy to make. You don’t even need a lens.The 38-year-old Turney, of Melbourne, Australia, is passionate about refractographs. He describes the images as visual records of light as it is refracted through transparent objects.
