Tim Tadder is back with a new series of portraits… ones which continue his humorous yet absorbing obsession with water. Following up his previous series of portraits, Fish Heads, these examples reverse the process, elevating their watery elements rather than dunking the heads. Water Wigs sees bald men in a dynamic set of images, one which places exploding water balloons around their heads lit with a triad of brilliant colors. The incredible and arresting results give each man a momentary wig of translucent hair.[see_also]
The expressions on each subjects face is simply perfect – ranging from serene looks reminiscent of renaissance portraiture to the primal rage of punk rockers. The fact that each image existed for a fraction of a second only adds to Tadder’s incredible skill at creating exceptionally interesting moments.
