Very slowly, almost reverently, he traces the lines, first with the left hand, then with all ten fingers at once, first the sides, then the cockpit, the doors, the wheel rims, the front, the roof, the back. Every square centimetre of the bodywork. Finally, after about an hour of intensive touching and feeling, Pete Eckert has captured the complete Arteon in his mind. Or, as he puts it: "The Arteon emerges before my mind's eye."
Beauty in every sense.
Blind photographer Pete Eckert has interpreted the design and fine lines of the new Volkswagen Arteon by means of his unique light painting techniques. How are these images created, and how does the photographic artist work and feel? A glimpse behind the scenes of an unusual photo shoot.
