Jason Tozer 1

We’ve seen “planets” created in the bottom of whiskey glasses by Ernie Button, cosmic creatures created out of real NASA space images by digital artist Chris Keegan, and now we bring you some more imaginary space fun with the macro photography of soap bubbles by Jason Tozer.

He photographs the bubbles on a wet ring in a 2×3-meter perspex dome that allows him to adjust the lighting perfectly, so he rarely needs to digitally adjust any of his work.

She challenged Gray to create a rainbow igloo, thinking it would be an impossible task, and in exchange she would grant him permission to marry her daughter, Kathleen Starrie. [Read more…]
