Photographer Alberto Seveso (previously) continues his high-speed captures of ink because it disperses in water, this time impressed by marine organisms. As its identify suggests, The Reef is a set that spotlights vivid plumes in shades of greens, pinks, and oranges digitally altered to evoke coral-like kinds. The collection was born out of a vacation spent in a distant, largely uninhabited area within the Andaman Sea, the place Seveso encountered a lush jungle and large, sandy seashores. He shares:
The island’s fauna is wealthy with unique species. It’s not unusual to identify colourful hornbills, charming spectacled langur monkeys, and elusive flying lemurs. Nonetheless, it was inside its coral reef that I turned totally captivated…I used to be mesmerized by the wonder and variety of shapes and colors—a world teeming with life, a glimpse of uncommon magnificence consistently threatened by human actions.
To create the collection, Seveso collaged a number of photos of suspended ink and added texture and form to the specimens. The ensuing works reference the supple, sinuous our bodies of the invertebrates by means of vigorous coloration.
