romanian photographer, bogdan chesaru captures images that are both exhilarating and serene. they transfix me for hours while i make up stories about them, but the most fascinating story is that of their creation. chesaru macro-photographs soap bubbles that have been captured in a wire frame, and he has titled this collection a kind of magic: the ephemeral universe of a soap bubble. two of my favorites are migration and substantia rubra—you can order your favorites here.
photographing light interference on soap bubbles is a very challenging process. my role as an artist is to isolate the most pleasant combination of colors from the vibrant chaos that form on the soap film. choosing just five solid colors from the rich gradients that i record in my images was quite a challenge. these were taken from awakening—one of my favorite soap bubble photographs.
