RAY TRACINGS is a portfolio of seven archival pigment prints on IFA 49, each measuring 14 ⅝” x 16 ⅞” (42.8 x 37.1 cm), and housed in a custom portfolio box. The portfolio was published in 2013 in an edition of ten, with two proofs.

Jessica Eaton has been widely acclaimed for her innovative experiments in colour photography. She creates vibrant images using unique analog techniques that manipulate properties of light. The photographs in this new series are derived from the effects of light bending through glass prisms. As in previous works, here she pushes the rhetoric of abstraction to provoke a sensory experience of colour and space. These optically-charged photographs animate the flux between objects, image, and perception. Making explicit the fact that photographs come from drawing with light, this series references modernist art, such as Berenice Abbot’s science photographs of light rays.

A photography graduate from Vancouver’s Emily Carr University who now resides in Montreal, Eaton has quickly risen to international prominence. She has exhibited widely, including the Photographer’s Gallery, London, Musée d’Art Contemporain de Montréal and the Daegu Photography Biennale, South Korea. She was awarded the 2012 Photography Jury Grand Prize at the Hyères Festival in France.
