Fascinated by the possibility of light being “visible” in fog, the German photographer Lucas Zimmermann has spent more than two years to complete his amazing series of traffic lights – on deserted foggy night roads, nearby Weimar, Germany.
The photographer has captured vibrant luminesce subtly emitted by the signals, when intense rays of red, yellow, and green radiate through a shadowy mist, exposing the ordinary traffic light in a completely new light.
“The possibility that the light colors are “visible” in fog fascinates me,” Zimmermann said.
According the Lucas “The unknown hue of blueish light is like the fog-hidden for the human eye, but the photograph shows us things we otherwise overlook, such as a simple traffic light on the street. An all known object which produces a strong effect in a strange situation with a simple photographic setup.”
Lucas took the images on a foggy intersection near Weimar, Germany, late at night. He used 5-20 second-long exposure and slightly adjusted the color temperature in post-production.
