“Luoma began to create his unique photographs in the late 1990s and for the past ten years he has produced abstract images, through the exposure of a negative to light – sometimes thousands of times. He maps the photographs in advance with intricate drawings and precise calculations, controlling the works inception with scientific precision. The results, however, are dependent on the inner workings of an analogue camera which can never fully be under Luoma’s control. There is always an element of chance in the final realisation of the image. His monumental works are highly unique, visual records of their own creation, capturing both the scientific and unexpected nature of photography.”
