Liquid Jewel, High-Speed Photography of Paint-Covered Balloons Bursting

Liquid Jewel

In his latest photo series “Liquid Jewel,” Switzerland-based photographer Fabian Oefner created unique splashes of color by covering balloons in paint and pricking them with a needle. Using high-speed photography, Oefner captured the moment the balloons burst, leaving behind “liquid jewels.” For more of the series, take a look at his website. Previously, we’ve posted about Oefner’s earlier experimental photo projects like “Black Hole,” “Nebulae,” and “Iridient.”
