It would be quite shocking to come across these giant creatures emerging from the surface of a lake. In reality, though, it wouldn’t be possible considering Milwaukee-based photographer Jack Long captures the beautiful liquid formations at extremely high speeds.
With technical acuity, Long documents the unpredictable formations, entitled River Giants, as liquid splashes through the air in the blink of an eye. He says, “Even with complicated construction and extensive testing, the results are still often surprising and serendipitous.”
As fluids reveal themselves through motion, Long knows the exact right moment to click the shutter and freeze those moments in time. The artist’s exploration of forms materializing from liquids results in a spectacular array of odd and unexpected bursts where no two shapes are the same.
