Project Description

Most of us remember playing with soap bubbles in our childhood, when  we were fascinated by the colors of them and therefore even more disappointed, when the bubble all of a sudden disappeared again. With this series of images, I was trying to capture the beauty of these short-lived sculptures.

When looking at them right after their creation, floating through air, they almost look like a planet orbiting in space. As if they would be there forever. But already a few seconds latter, when the bubble starts to burst and their presence is gone, you get a very different impression of that ephemeral object. It is intriguing how photography enables you to stop time for a moment and save it forever. I think thats what the series ultimately is about. Preserving time.
