There is a vast history of Art that deals with the sublime and luminescent images and objects, with many contemporary artists, such as James Turrell and Keith Sonnier, making use of the material of light itself within their work. In the course of my M.F.A. studies I have actively sought out reviews, articles and books which feature such artists and their work. Clearly my own work can be considered within the context of such art. My aim in writing this paper is to establish the specific events and influences within my life which have been responsible for my \initial\" interest in photography and the luminous image and have consequently formed the foundations of my current work. This paper provides a personal context rather than a broader historical and contemporary context of which much has already been written."
