Glittering Metallic Ink Clouds Photographed by Albert Seveso

October 12, 2012

Christopher Jobson

I am completely unable to resist posting new work from photographer Albert Seveso (previously here, here and even here), and this continuation of his experimental underwater ink photography is no exception. For this new series, Il Mattino ha l’oro in bocca, Seveso uses accents of metallic inks to accentuate the rolling plumes of color as they disperse underwater. All photos courtesy the artist.

Bizarre Underwater Portraits by Tim Tadder

July 30, 2012

Christopher Jobson

Fish Heads is a new series of fun portraits by L.A.-based photographer Tim Tadder. Though I’ve seen a number of different underwater portraiture projects, Tadder utilizes light and surface tension in an interesting way, making it seem as if the subjects are peering in from (or be swallowed by) a kind of spooky portal. You can see many more from the series over on Behance. All photos courtesy the artist.

High Speed Liquid Flowers Photographed by Jack Long

May 26, 2012

Christopher Jobson

At a quick glance these colorful photographs by Milwaukee-based photographed Jack Long might pass as some kind of strange exotic flowers, but a squint of the eyes later reveals they are actually high speed photographs of colored water, captured in a way to mimic the shape of blooms, leaves, and even pots.

Each photograph from Long’s Vessels and Blooms series is captured in a stunningly precise take that took months of trial and error to perfect. Like a mad scientist he creates cocktails of dyes, thickeners, and pigments for each component of the shot and then blasts them through a customized mechanism before snapping a perfectly timed capture. “This series was a culmination of months of planning and testing. Hundreds of captures are made in testing and then many more during the actual final capture stage. A very few stand out as being the best,” he says. You can see much more of his work on Flickr and 500px. (via oddity central)

A Wall of Shattered Glass Floods a Benedictine Monastery

April 26, 2012

Christopher Jobson

Aerial is a new site-specific installation by Baptiste Debombourg (previously) at an old Benedictine monastery called Brauweiler Abbey near Cologne, Germany. Debombourg used numerous sheets of shattered laminate glass to mimic a frothy flood of water rushing into a room. Remarkably beautiful work. See much more by clicking on the thumbnails here.
