Soraa LED Lighting shines in Los Angeles gallery

Andrei Duman chooses GaN-on-GaN technology to bring out true colour in art photography

GaN-on-GaN LED firm Soraa has announced that its LED lamps have been installed at the new Andrei Duman Gallery in the high end mall Westfield Topanga outside Los Angeles.

For Duman, lighting his work in the gallery, which opened in Fall 2015, was an important consideration - colours had to be rendered exactly. Light is a critical element in capturing images - and it's critical to the accurate display of colour in art photography.

In addition, the innovative design of the gallery required lighting that could be carefully controlled to accentuate the space and also be used to illuminate precise points on the artwork. Duman and his lighting designer insisted upon Soraa LEDs to illuminate his intimate 1,500 sq. ft. gallery and the "˜display trees'  from which 12 double-sided images in glass frames hang and appear to float in the air.

"Great photography deserves great lighting. Colours must pop - and Soraa's lamps are simply perfect," said Andrei Duman. "With Soraa LEDs, I could bring out the true green and the detail that is important in my image 'The Ghost Door' shot in a diamond mining town in Namibia. Lighting also sets the mood in the gallery and helps the customer connect to the image. I strongly recommend that my customers use Soraa LEDs to illuminate the images they choose."

Soraa's GaN-on-GaN technology allows its LEDs to operate at currents that are more than five times higher than LEDs built on other materials, according to the company. This means a lot of light comes from a very small source, resulting in a narrow beam that can be controlled to crisply illuminate any area with a single shadow.
