Shinichi Maruyama

Here's a link to Shinichi Maruyama's website. In his series Kusho (meaning sky), he takes high-speed photographs of differently coloured liquids (black and clear) colliding in mid-air. He captures the moment the liquids collide, but before they mix to grey. Its interesting how he uses photography as a tool to capture what we cannot see, but also to record new spatial qualities defined by time and material.
