Marcel Christ's Exploding, Bursting, and Smoking Colors

March 31, 2014

Marcel Christ uses a modified flash and extremely high shutter speeds (up to 1/10,0000th of a second) to capture exploding, bursting clouds of colored powder and paint. "What attracts me the most [to this way of working], Christ recently told Wired, "is that you start from scratch, you start with nothing...Timing is the most essential thing, because there's only one specific moment that's really beautiful when all the parts are going away from each other."
