This photography project began in March 2020, when Covid-19 forced us to shelter at home. After a year of experimentation with the refraction of natural light through prisms, Diane Lachman created complex and vibrant images that reflect our experiences during these tumultuous times.
Last Spring was filled with the unknown. As an artist who needs to create in solitude, I had unlimited time at home. One sunny day, I placed a prism in front of a ray of light and saw the perfect spectrum in the shadow on the floor. In this moment, I had a plan. Looking through the lens of the camera inspired me to escape the painful reailty of the pandemic. Since then I have become obsessed with capturing the evanescence of prismatic color.
