Explosions Create Split-Second Illusions of Light


In these photographs by Joschi Herczeg and Daniele Kaehr, the artistic team captures a single, exciting moment in a mundane, domestic surrounding.

Their bio describes, "Their fascination lay in making order out of chaos and freezing an ephemeral creation; each image is like a chance sculpture–the artists themselves were uncertain of the shape, colour and size they would form."
