HYPERNOVA LIT

A Stellar Flare of Young Adult Writing and Visual Art

Painting with Light

BY MANNIE AVILA AND STEPHEN LOPEZ

Artists’ Statement

These photographs were created collaboratively using flares, steel wool lit on fire, and a slow shutter speed. The intent was to capture light and fire and the way it moves against the backdrop of our city at night.
