Blowing bubbles as a child, washing the dishes or referring to them in conversation, everyone can relate to soap bubbles.
Artists use them to represent our relationship with death and the loss of something cherished. Scientists, mathematicians, architects reference soap bubbles and soap films because of their unique ability to achieve a ‘minimal surface’. Scientific research and art works provide an endless source of inspiration because I want to learn and see something new constantly and with bubbles there is so much more than the obvious.
The bubbles I photograph are very small and this gallery is a brief introduction to the wondrous world of bubble minutiae. Photographs are presented in pairs, the original and a cropped section showing characteristics which are invisible to the naked eye.
