Through my camera, subjects become a canvas on which the paint used is replaced by light. Portraying people in acts of passion, lust and love.Things usually hidden behind closed doors will now be lit up in different colors and patterns. Human behaviours that are in times uncontrollable and undecided, repressed by the mentality of mainstream society. Some might relate to the acts portrayed but never admitted to. Most of these behaviours are simply a quest for sexual fulfillment and ecstasy. A natural trait of the human mind if you ask me. -Luc Pigeault, 2010Bathed in bright lights and fantastic light forms, Pigeault presents the sexual desires and explorations of his subjects in a manner that blurs reality with fantasy. And rightly so as many sexual fetishes are based on recreating fantasies. Those actions that happen behind closed doors, are put front and center in his photographs, and yet almost entirely cloaked through his light painting. It is a convoluted way of revealing and celebrating that which is often spoken of in hushed tones, and yet ultimately complicating the matter even more through his light forms
