The photographs that make up the Form exhibition stand at 1600mm × 1000mm and are, essentially, back-lit transparent images, mounted on very thin electric paper. A dark sheet of glass then frames the image creating, in effect, a very thin lightbox. The visual effects were all created in-camera and are down to a range of “lights and filtration”, says Tomlinson.

Form (produced with support from Swarovski and @radical media) will run in Paris until April 12
