Darren Pearson is always looking for the perfect California landscape for one of his life-sized light-sculptures. These light-sculptures are created through long exposure photography (the same technique commonly used to write a name with a sparkler or capture car trails at night). Pearson makes complex light-effect photographs, none of which are photoshopped.

Anonymous: One of the saddest and most hil- NO BITCH, the sad thing here is the fact that you're a stripper. If you want respect, maybe you should've graduated high school. 😂😂 when did stripping become a legitimate career?

Awww, you tried so hard, but unfortunately I can’t hear you over the sound of my debt-free college degree and massive disposable income.

Yeah, just ONE scene…

You crack me up! One girl in each scene? Wow you are so progressive! How many black girls were seen twerking vs. ballet/ribboning?
Answer one and sometimes none. She is continuing stereotypes and needs to realize its bull.

I especially love the scene where she’s crawling under the women, but the only woman’s ass that you can fully see on screen is the black woman’s.  Good Morning America showed that on TV this morning! YAY!!

It really is a wonder to behold.  Truly.  Coupled that with what the guy said about the ballet scene featuring only white dancers is truly inspiring.  We all know that ballet is a “whites only” dance genre.  There probably weren’t ANY ballerinas of color anyway (but let’s all pretend as if the majority of professional dancers don’t have training in ballet). 

Oh and let’s really appreciate her tiptoe into blackness.  Look at her, really representin’ for the peeps, with her gold chains, enormous hoop earrings, gelled baby hairs, booty shorts and shit.  So refreshing and not at all like all the other white artists that have put on blackness for “fun” and “edginess”.  

Way to go, Taylor!  You’ve reached a whole new level of basic and unoriginal art.  Woohoo!!!!

To be fair though, the OP was calling out the bullshit in the tweet. I don’t like Taylor, but you don’t have to lie to get your point across.

People are really reaching. When did ballet become “whites only”? And “gelled down baby hairs”….bish where??!

Okay y’all neet to cut the crap, seriously. She could have made a video full of black girls and it wouldn’t have been good enough. Is this really how low you think of her? Do you really think she would put a black girl in the video just to have one? I mean look at the last pic, any blonds besides Taylor herself? No. Do you hear people complaining? No, because it has plenty of different people in it. Has it crossed your mind that maybe the ballerina’s are all white because that just looked good for the video? That it looked better like this, for the sake of the video? She literally made this video to laugh at herself for her lack of dance skills or whatever so other people had no right to judge her anymore and yet you find another crack in something completely human. If she put all white girls in the twerk scene you would have complained anyway because white girls can’t twerk or whatever. Stop whining and if you know your shit so perfectly why don’t you do it yourself. I’m not even a fan of Taylor Swift and I just watched the video for this post but seriously guys. What the actual fuck.
