High Speed Destruction

September 13, 2011

Photographer Alan Sailer spends an inordinate amount of time photographing objects meeting a violent demise by means of high speed projectiles, high voltage explosions, and sometimes just hurling things at a wall. I love the other-worldly appearance some of the objects take on, especially the pear that appears to be liquifiying from the inside out. There are thousands of photos in his Flickr stream, the above are some of his most recent, and here are some of his favorites.

An Abrupt End: Explosive High-Speed Photos by James Huse

July 5, 2011

Over the past few months I’ve encountered a fair share of high-speed exploding balloon photos, some of which have found their way onto Colossal including the work of Edward Horsford and recently Ryan Taylor. However these magnificent captures by designer James Huse are something wholly different. The surface of these inverted balloon photos flare and whorl like solar flares on the Sun, and yet simultaneously appear cold and frozen, perhaps the result of Huse’s decision to use milk-filled balloons. The project, entitled An Abrupt End was completed as part of his final year at Kingston Upon Thames where he’s studying graphic design and photography. The rest of his work is also impeccable and snagged him a Best New Blood award at the 2011 D&AD Awards. Somebody should hire this guy and pay him lots and lots of money.

London photographer Edward Horsford uses strobe lights, a custom high-speed trigger and balloons filled with dyed water to make these otherworldly shots. Here’s more on how he does it. (via ignant)
