Tom Flynn’s work predominantly uses camera-less photography to explore the occurrences of light. Stress Birefringence is caused when rays of light pass through a material with molecules of no uniformity. The speeds of the rays are altered as they pass through the strained or layered material, causing varied occurrences of colour. When put through a photographic enlarger and printed directly onto c-type paper it is possible to magnify the results and look into these intangible details. The ability of the photographic process to capture light as well as distort reality enables these occurrences to be viewed in a way that combines the imaginative with the representational.
