Japanese photographer Tokihiro Sato uses light within his art to record movement through space. Sato specializes in long exposures ranging from one to three hours taken from a large-format camera on a tripod. The photographer then moves through the targeted space with either a mirror that he holds to the sun or a flashlight that he waves about at night. The combination of the movement, the light and the long exposure results in detailed scenes that have interesting plays of light, but no image of Sato.
