NY-based artist, Michael Chernoff created his own set of deities in his photo series ‘Sacred Mediums.’ These photographs were created under a larger umbrella theme of “media acting as a religions script.” The show explored how modern culture worships media-stars with an almost god-like reverence.

The technique used in creating these photos is called light painting. The camera’s shutter is left open for an extended period of time in a pitch-dark room. The camera only captures the model’s movements highlighted by the glow sticks and other light devices. Like painting, this style merges many moments into a single image, which allows for an eerie effect of multiple limbs and faces.

Chernoff is intrigued by the strange and bizarre. Check out the video artist and illustrator’s other work here!
