Where the Light Goes - William Knipscher

Where the Light Goes

“Where the Light Goes” started out with origami cranes. For some time I’ve been folding cranes with silver gelatin photo paper and exposing them under light and then processing them as normal prints. This started as an homage to the Japanese tradition of folding 1,000 cranes to heal a loved one, but soon became a way to discover how light interacts with a three-dimensional photosensitive object. The unfolded prints record this indexical act of the path of light, reflecting and refracting, revealing the imperfections of my handiwork. The prints shown here are smaller crops of freeform folds I made in the darkroom.
