Still Life: Chami’s Experimental Photography

05. David Gravette, portrait, 2012
Digital photo through water tray
I got inspired by a book of photographs by Brian Oglesbee and wanted to shoot something similar of David Gravette. I bought a perspex tray and put water and dishwashing liquid in it plus a little green food coloring. My wife, Sam, wrangled the bubbles while Gravette lay on the floor beneath the tray. I used a macro lens to focus on his reflected images in the bubbles.
