Alan Sailer’s Photography “Looks Fake”


American photographer Alan Sailer’s latest high-speed photographs show rubber balls impacting into surfaces including raw cabbage and craft putty. Titled Looks Fake, the image above is from a recent series that has been developing on Sailer’s Flickr account.

Staged by shooting objects at speeds of up to 240 miles per hour, using a specially built high-speed flash, Sailer’s images are frequently colourful and seemingly unreal – a source of inspiration for saturated and semi-saturated palettes.
