Black & Milk #2 Charit Pusiri
Thailand

Nominee

"Black & Milk #2"
The concept of this project is hi-speed photography of black and white milk splashes. In this project I tried to capture the milk splash which is an undefined and unpredictable form combined with props such as plexi-glass or other geometrical shape objects which is a defined form to create a contrast with the milk splash. I also tried to create the sense of illusion to the images by creating a somewhat impossible scene to make the series more interesting and surreal.
