Some artists paint with a brush on canvas, but artist Janne Parviainen is a little bit different.

He sets up very long camera exposures and develops his drawings by moving different lights in specific patterns within the camera frame. As a result of his movements, spirals of light form mysterious figures that emerge out of the darkness.
