Night Bubbles (2020-2021)

I have been photographing soap bubbles against the night sky nearly every night for the past year and a half.

Reminiscent of creatures from the deep sea, a distant galaxy, or the slide of a microscope, they are lit up only by a camera’s flash and ambient outdoor lighting. They are colorful because of the iridescence of the bubble.

For more about the story behind the project, read Satellites of Soap. For the latest images, follow my Instagram page @em.ily_wick.
