Combining photography and graphic design is really fun because of the vivid images that can be created to express a simple yet in-depth truth.  In The Light Of Life I took a picture of a light bulb and then transformed the filament into a cross.  The artwork can be summed up in one phrase:  Jesus is the light of life.

After completing The Light Of Life, I noticed inside the bulb what appears to be stars or galaxies in space.  The dust particles from my photograph gave it that cool effect. Jesus is the bright Morning Star and also the creator of all the stars (Revelation 22:16; Genesis 1:14-19).  He is the Light of the world and the Light of the universe. How amazing our Creator is all of those things and created all of those things.  Nothing is impossible with our God!

In John 1:3-5, it says, “Through him (Jesus) all things were made…In him was life, and that life was the light of men.”

First of all, Jesus created all things (including the stars). The creation story is found in Genesis 1.

Secondly, there is life in Jesus.  “God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son” (1 John 5:11).

Lastly, Jesus (the Life) is the light of men.  Jesus said, “I am the light of the world.  Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”

There is no brighter light than Jesus!  He shines in the darkness and He is “the true light that gives light to everyone” (John 1:9).

May we trust in Jesus and look to Him who shines bright for the world to see!

    I really like the image of the light bulb with the cross, and the stars representing the universe. However, below the cross, I can see the image of a figure that looks like a king wearing a robe, with the face of a lion. There is a red line that is extended toward the bottom of the bulb. To me the figure represents Jesus, the King, the lion of Judah. The red line could be the blood he shed on the cross for everyone. Very good, Curtis.

      Wow! That’s amazing the image of King Jesus in the light bulb! I never saw that until you mentioned it. Thank you for sharing all of your thoughts and how God spoke to you through this piece. God bless!

    Cool image! And it is interesting that it looks like water and blood under the cross. I like the dust stars and I like the shape of the cross.

      I appreciate your comment Sheena. It was a really fun project! The water and blood under the cross was not planned but I’m glad that the picture turned out that way. God is good!
