Artist Jack Long combines elements of sculpting, painting, and photography for his remarkable works, which are images of colored water splashed into the air to look, for a fraction of a second, like flowers.
He calls himself a liquid sculptor rather than simply a photographer, because his main focus is the shape and colors of the splashes, which he experiments with for months in order to perfect. It just so happens that photography is the only way to actually experience these works of art because they take shape so fleetingly.
And because he knows what many of you will wonder when you see these pictures, he notes that “the images I create are single capture events. I do not use photoshop composition or digital imaging to create my images.”
