Attendees were also able to interact with zoetropes, praxinoscopes, and view 3D anaglyphs from the different series.
A total of 84 pieces were exhibited on the walls, with a series of new booklets, playing cards, and other works from the series available to purchase.
"Incredible use of light! Seemingly such simple processes (even though I imagine a huge amount of skill + time!) The single line images are astonishing... I can see so much of the face even without it being lit... what our minds fill in.
The film of Tears, beautifully punctuated with music!"
- "Thanks. So much more interesting than the White Chapel Gallery."
"That's a great and very creative exhibition! I love all the different ways light was used to create abstract and unique images. The 'Fingerprints' section I think is very special."
"Very striking and memorable - particularly the single line portraits. Looking forward to the next exhibition."
"Identity is one to the most precious gifts that we have and being able of capturing a person's identity through just a picture is pure talent. It is amazing!"
"Fascinating collection of images. The single line portraits are so details for such a simple highlighted line. Amazing. Thank you."
"Absolutely gorgeous, very haunting, both personal and abstract."
"They are unique."

"I think it was amazing especially the lines there just lines but great shape."

Pleased to catch the last day of Tom Elkins’ exhibition ‘Light’ at Ply Gallery, Crouch End. Here a snap of Tom in front of his ‘Fingerprints’ and ‘Single Line’ portraits, and a favourite work from his Muybridge inspired series this one entitled ‘Woman pregnant with twins, rising from position of lying on the floor’ . No mean feat this, apparently accomplished in 2.5 seconds. More via Tom Elkins at @threepractices #tomelkins #plygallery #muybridge
