Lux Noctis: Reuben Wu Drone Photography Between Romantic Painting And Science Fiction

With a desire to explore new places as if they were unknown territory, Chicago-based photographer, film-maker and music producer Reuben Wu has started a project, still ongoing and titled ‘Lux Noctis’, where he uses drone-mounted LED lights to illuminate landscapes, giving them an otherworldly quality reminiscent of a sci-fi movie. Through that process, the beautiful rock formations, mountains and desert scenes that we are all so familiar with are reimagined with ideas of planetary exploration, 19th century sublime romantic painting, and science fiction. The ‘halo’ effect is particularly impressive!
