Light is sent into the void. it doesn’t come back.
Its journey is infinite.
When an object
meets the light,
light’s journey ends.
It returns as a reflection.
Shape, form and colour are perceived, creating the world as we know it.
The form I ‘brought to light’ in front of my lens is the most elusive, unpredictable, dynamic form I know.
A micron thin membrane.
A soap bubble.
This form meets light in the void revealing…
Colours of infinite chaos,
Shapes of incalculable geometry.
If a bubble pops in the void was it ever there?
The form of the bubble is tragically ephemeral; therefore time plays an important role.
Eight seconds. A short lifespan, and yet, so much colour!
A blink later the bubble is gone. A unique form never to be repeated.
White light and the transparent undulating membrane, a living prism dancing in the void, revealing all the colours within it; The light waves are refracted, twisted and scattered along the invisible wave, exposing light’s infinite potential.
My lens has seen a lot in its time. what was reflected back to it was utterly breathtaking. An eerily beautiful chaos that it had never conceived of before. A symphony of colour and form.
We were both very happy…
I’m a bubblero.
I’m a photographer.
Those worlds were bound to meet.
This revelation of light was waiting for my lens to capture it.
