I have a friend that takes photos during carwashes and they kinda look like this. But Erin O’Malley strikes gold with those iridescent, rainbow prism abstractions. O’Malley’s work depicts the interaction of light with transparent and reflective surface. She uses digital macro photography and a series of found objects to record the intricacies between light and the micro-world. Trippy. Gorgeous. Calming.
