Magnificent Swirls of Ink in Water by Alberto Seveso

Based in Portoscuso, Italian photographer Alberto Seveso's work has recently become quite the hot commodity for musicians. In collaboration with their music studios, bands like The Temper Trap and The Black Seeds have commissioned the talented artist to capture the fluid movement of ink mixing with water in eye-catching album cover designs. This series includes many of the unused shots that were taken during these coveted photo shoots.

Since the early 1990's, Seveso has been creating his unique work with only ink, water, a high-speed camera, and a good eye for color. When speaking about his process, the artist says that he enjoys experimenting with his technique because, “It makes me think about the possibility to stop time in a click.”

If you like this style, you'll just love Seveso's other projects including Ink Riders, in which LEGO toys surf along blue ink waves, and Beibeees, where expressive abstract faces come alive in the swirls of color.
