My personal work is in the genre of what is broadly defined as "splash" photography. More accurately I call them fluid suspensions. My love for photographic arts and a knack for “tinkering” with mechanical technology has led me to create a unique series of images. In a very brief slice of time through short duration flash photography, I physically suspend liquids into "space" and capture their forms. With a good deal planning and a huge dose of serendipitty, I get wonderous forms both abstract and at times familiar. It is the combination of beauty and wonder that I want to illustrate in my images. You will not see anything like this anywhere, any time soon.
