Backlighting A Photo Negative With ACRYLITE®

Ed Sinofsky, Glowmaster at Photo Glow joined forces with World Renowned Photographer, and Shroud of Turin expert, Barrie Schwortz. Sinofsky was tasked with creating a backlit frame for the Shroud of Turin in 1978 image that Schwortz had photographed in negative. This means the lightest areas of the image appear darkest while the darkest areas appear lightest.

PhotoGlow used ACRYLITE® LED light guiding edge lit panels to distribute the light evenly over the entire image, and ACRYLITE® Non-Glare acrylic to protect the print and reduce reflection off of it, keeping emphasis on the image itself.

The backlit effect with this particular negative photograph is breathtaking, again showing that backlighting images can elicit extra emotion in a way unlit images can't.
