The images in this photo portfolio collectively weave an extraordinary and mysterious cosmos out of the ostensibly "ordinary" everyday world.
The project that produced these photographs cannot have started more innocently or unexpectedly. One day, as my family and I were sitting down to dinner, my wife placed two small acrylic candle holders on the table and reached for some matches to light the candles.
A veritable universe of nested "worlds within worlds" of trapped air bubbles immediately grabbed hold of my eye, my soul, and - of course - my camera.
A selection of these images have been published as a featured portfolio in Lenswork (Issue #76, May/June 2008).
