Exploding Lightbulbs: High-Speed Photos by Jon Smith
American photographer Jon Smith fills lightbulbs with colorful objects and liquids before causing them to explode and using high-speed photography to capture them as they burst into pieces.
“There is a certain unpredictability with high speed photography that I’m drawn to. It allows you to capture the unseen, the transition between before and after. It shows the beauty in destruction. Sure, it starts out as a normal light bulb and ends as a pile of broken glass, but for just a split second, it’s something beautiful – and to capture that is wonderful.”
