Faces of Water — Making Photograms of Water
Moses Hacmon came up with one of the best photographic riddles we’ve ever heard.
How do you make a photogram of water if it’s clear? Light would just pass through it!
Moses spent years studying water and developed a photographic process that let him photograph the best part about water: its movement.
By working with a liquid film made up of nanoparticles, Moses is able to capture a moment in water’s movement. He layers this film over paper, and once water runs over it, the nanoparticles are absorbed into the paper, creating a negative image of the water’s flow.
The final image is a captivating still of the water’s twists and turns, overlaps, and shapes as it flows. You might even say you can see faces.
