Night Bubbles (2020-2021)

Portraits of bubbles at night. In progress.

At first glance, these photographs resemble creatures from the deep sea, a distant galaxy, or the slide of a microscope. But they are ordinary soap bubbles lit up only by a camera’s flash and white patio lights. They are colorful because of the iridescence of the bubble.
