Water Sculpture

Shinichi Maruya­ma, a Japan­ese pho­tog­ra­ph­er now liv­ing in New York, uses sim­ply his hands, glass­es of water and a Phase One P45 cam­era to cre­ate ele­gant water sculp­tures. “No mat­ter how many times I repeat the same process of throw­ing [water] in the air, I nev­er achieve the same result. And I am so fas­ci­nat­ed by this unex­pect­ed inter­ac­tion of liq­uids col­lid­ing … that I am over­whelmed by its beau­ty.” Find an inter­view with Maruya­ma here and more images of his work here. On a rather relat­ed note, don’t miss our pre­vi­ous post, Water Drop Filmed in 10,000 Frames Per Sec­ond. Anoth­er thing of beau­ty.
