You upload your photo or mail us a print and you will receive a complete Lamp or Night Light. Once you receive your light, all you have to do is plug into the electrical outlet and turn the light on.

The light you receive contains several elements:


The main piece is the carved piece, based on the photograph. We start with a piece of an extremely durable material with somewhat of a marble feel to it. The piece is then carved based on the photograph you send us (the original photograph isn’t damaged). The special carving technique is similar to the one used in Lithophanes (see below). Due to its translucent nature, holding the piece to the light will create an illusion of a Photo. This piece will last for hundreds of years without changing its quality or color.


The carved piece is assembled into a frame of your choice. The frames are all high quality wooden frames and are available in both Contemporary and Traditional styles. Styles and Colors vary depending on Light Affection size selected.

The larger size Light Affection lights come with an energy efficient light source and an On/Off switch cable. The smaller sizes (Night Light and 4×4) come with a small light bulb and an On/Off switch as well.

Each Light Affection comes with an authenticity card specifying the unique serial number of the piece.


Based on an age-old art form known as lithophanes (Greek for vision in stone), the engraving of an image comes to life when illuminated from behind. The varying thickness of the translucent material creates the illusion of the original image. Today, Light Affection is creating these pieces using modern, long-lasting materials that give this unique effect.
