Fax Ayres’ photography employs a ‘lightpainting’ technique to embue his subjects with an almost surreal quality. He sets up still life vignettes in the dark and then carefully paints individual components with light, assembling multiple images together to create the final photograph.

Gallery Hours:

  • Thursday, Friday, and Sunday: 12pm to 4pm
  • Saturdays: 1pm to 4pm

Athenaeum Gallery is located at 201 Prince St., Alexandria, VA. For more information, call 703.548.0035 or visit
