For his third and final investigation in his “Paint Action” series Swiss photographer Fabian Oefner (previously here and here) created a series of flower-inspired paint formations titled Orchid. To make the images Oefner poured numerous layers of paint with a top layer of either black or white onto which he dropped a colored sphere. The resulting splash forced the colored paint up and out of the top layer resulting in the crowning splashes of color you see here. While working on the project the Creator’s Project stopped by the photographer’s studio for a discussion about how he works.
