randomly dispersed particles

Pierre le Hors Firework Studies book

Scout Holiday posted these images from a book called Fireworks Studies by Pierre Le Hors

“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.” - Pierre Le Hors

They would ascend to a new level of greatness if they were charcoal, but I still like 'em as photos. I'd love to try something like this myself, different subject maybe. Hmm..!
