  • I can sense an “is it art” debate coming…

    • pop’d

      but the photos are great, nonetheless.

  • I love this type of work it reminds me of volatile values one of the images in a series I created (Feelings of Empathy) at dapedesigns.co.uk where I deconstruct the human head and leave the essence of feelings. Thanks for bringing these images to (light) they blow traditional stills into the decade they belong…,booooooommmm Art4Aart or ART4ARTsSAke respond.

  • Dave

  • Definitely art, they remind me of Pollock’s paintings with a twist.

  • emily

    its photography.

    nope, just being difficult. its art, its fresh and i love it!

    • Caroline

      The flowers were frozen in liquid nitrogen before he exploded them.

    Art! So much so. They remind me more of paintings than photographs.

  • Audrey

    Does anyone know if these images are published in a book? do you have the name of the book? i love his work and am not sure where these are published.

  • Ana

    There is no debate. This is basically Neo-Surrealism at its best, It’s beautiful.
