Pop Shots: A dedication to the Doc

There is a photograph that has stayed in the back of my mind since 1997 (i had to look it up!) when i started to study photography at A level. It was taken by the late great Harold Edgerton who was a pioneer in strobe photography and arguably the first man to show us high speed physical reactions until then utterly invisible to the human eye. A professor of electrical engineering by trade he captured a number of iconic images both in terms of aesthetic and scientific study together with photographer Gjon Mili throught the 1930s.

This is a project i have always wanted to take a shot at and although surprising, somewhat inevitably it has taken on my own spin.

I hope you enjoy and all comments very welcome,

Many Thanks x.
