It’s officially safe to call water photography a Southern California photography subgenre. You have Jill Greenberg’s Glass Ceiling and Tim Tadder’s Fish Heads and Water Wigs and Christy Lee Rogers’ Reckless Unbound and, now, we have a photographer who stripped the idea down to playing with liquid itself: Los Angeles photographer Andrew Hall‘s Liquids In Motion.
Hall’s photos are a really breathtaking set of liquids dancing and playing around. Some are bubbling up through colorscapes, some are splashed around, and some are manipulated to appear to have the force of a waterfall or lightness of a cloud. Unlike the rest of the photographers who have been doing water work, Hall obsesses over how water passes through space and how it conducts itself. It’s almost a scientific character study that analyzes how liquids of different viscosities behave in different environments. They are incredibly light and abstract and his color palette is brilliant. The milky photos above? Please give me a giant print of them.
Andrew has a ton of other work that you can check out here. He’s doing very interesting activity with materials and all of his work has a certain level of fascination with its subject.
