Having recently purchased a macro lens for my camera I thought I’d give it a trial run. This series of images features regular soap bubbles shot using the macro lens with the aid of a couple of speed lights and a soft box. When illuminated the right way the vivd colours and organic shapes visible on the surface of these short-lived spheres are truly amazing.
Artificial Anatomy was a self initiated project intended to explore our understanding of surface, texture and volume. The human head and skull were used as a canvas; familiar structures onto which coloured paints were poured to define their surface and shape. Corresponding images of the head and skull were captured at varying stages of the paint coverage. Images were then edited and combined in post to form hollow multilayered anatomical forms that appear to be suspended unaided in space.
