The Black Hole series is so spectacular, it almost seems unreal… Yet the concept behind these vibrantly-coloured paint-splashes is actually quite simple.
Fabian Oefner, a 29-year old Swiss photographer who clearly likes to have fun with paint, created this series by dripping various shades of acrylic colours onto a metallic rod that was connected to a drill. When switched on, the paint started to move away from the rod, creating these amazing-looking images.
The motion of the paint happened in a blink of an eye, just milliseconds after the drill was turned on. To capture the moment, where the paint forms that distinctive shape, Fabian connected a sensor to the drill, which sent an impulse to the flashes. These specialized units were capable of creating flashes as short as a 1/40000 of a second, freezing the motion of the paint.
Get a glimpse of the creative process here, but also be sure to take a look at more of Fabian’s projects. Some really beautiful work!

Stunning. Simply stunning. I really cannot get enough of these photos. They are all so beautiful, so colourful, so imaginative.
The photographer and subject in all of them is Olga Valeska, a 21 year-old literature student from France that discovered photography just over a year ago (a year!) and is completely self-taught. She does her own make-up, scenery, and costumes and uses a self-timer to take the portraits of herself. A one-woman studio!
What she loves about photography is that it allows her to combine the things she is passionate about, like painting, sculpting, drawing, and making costumes.
Sit back and take in all this beauty. Enter Olga’s mysterious, surreal, wondrous world…
