Heinz Maier’s Liquid Colour


German photographer Heinz Maier’s macro photography of coloured water droplets transforms minute events that happen in milliseconds into stunning still-lives. Capturing the images in his homemade studio, Maier uses a bed of liquid to reflect the point at which the droplet meets the surface.

The Stylus report Exploding Colour shows several examples of high-speed photography used to capture kinetic colour, whereas Colour in Suspension shows alternative approaches to using pigments in solution.
