Mystifying light drawings of New York in the 1970’s (14 Photos)

In the 1970's, artist and photographer Eric Staller experimented with long exposures on his Nikon 35mm film camera. Roaming the streets of New York with Christmas lights and 4th of July sparklers, he created these stunning photographs that would "articulate the particular choreography or architecture of light". Leaving the camera lens open for several minutes, Staller would move about urban spaces, outlining cars and stairways to capture these mystifying photos.

    #1 and #2 ended up being album covers-" Games" by Synergy and "City of Fear" by FM. Only check them out if you like electronic music from the 70's and obscure Canadian synthrock.
