Incredible Light Painting

A photographer has brought a series of pictures taken in the middle of the night to life – by using spectacular light paintings to outline imaginary people. In one scene an empty playground becomes filled with excitable children and in another a basketball court is lit up with a player preparing to take aim. Swiss photographer Regis Matthey, 25, creates his art using a long exposure shot meaning he only has several seconds to ‘draw’ the paintings before the camera shutter closes.
