In "Lines 1" the projection of a series of lines at various distances from one another creates the illusion of a woman's figure. The movement of the lines follows the curves of the body giving almost a 3D optical illusion.

London based Italian photographer Padoan uses laser lights to capture and explore the human form and raw emotion on camera, a unique technique he developed in 2011. Where his earlier work is concerned with the beauty of the female form in pose and how this can be explored through the use of line, his more recent work uses a more concentrated use of light to exhibit raw human emotion through movement. These images alternate between two extremes; on one side there is fear and desperation and agony, and on the other an explosion of anger and passion. For Padoan, the dramatic power of these images have a cathartic effect which only exist due to the highly unpredictable nature of the laser movements and the otherwise unseen expression of his models.
