Firework Studies

Pierre le Hors Firework Studies book

I love this book, Firework Studies by Pierre Le Hors! An amazing way to capture such an ephemeral experience.

“firework studies is a book compiling photographs of fireworks in the night sky. by constraining nearly all tonal values to stark blacks and pure whites, the trails, explosions and clouds of debris are reduced to a series of simple repeated formal elements: arced lines, spherical bursts, and randomly dispersed particles. i made no effort to limit digital artifacts resulting from pushing the image files past their conventional range; the resulting noise becomes hard to distinguish from the texture of the fireworks themselves.” -PLH
