These are the amazing light paintings of Tackyshack, who is really taking this art form to a complete new level. Some of the amazing images in this small collection of his work are crazy psychedelia. Other look like Alice in Wonderland landscapes. And the one above—playing with shadows and subtle abstract shapes—looks like entrances to alternate dimensions.

His own words:

My name's Jeremy and some call me Tacky. I am a light painting fanatic. I live in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia and spend great amounts of time waving lights in front of my camera. It's been more than a hobby since I started in late 2008.

I aspire to share this art form with the public through interactive workshops so that they can create their own light painting photographs. Something as intriguing as this should be enjoyed by all.

This is part of a new series in which we are featuring futuristic, alien-looking or just plain awesome photos of landscapes and cityscapes. If you are a photographer with such work, please drop me a line here.
