The Greek god Photon, here depicted with a
hand and one of his arms missing.

Photon was the product of the marriage of the Greek
god Hermes and the goddess Aurora. He was half brother
to Barbia, the buxom Priestess of the Winds on Crete,
whose father was also Hermes. He was also half-brother
of Daphne, whose father was also Hermes. Some say he
was half-brother to Pan, whose father was also Hermes,
though this is contested.

Photon is the Greek god of photography. His role is
to follow his mother Aurora across the sky during the
day, carrying light to the mortal world. At night or
in low light conditions he lives inside lamps and/or
speedlights.
