London: Nick Rees

Nick Rees’ new personal project reveals the secretive beauty behind one of the world’s most coveted liquids: petrol.

The macro shots are an extension of his usual drinks photography, using his skill of controlling liquids to display them in a different light. The shots show thin layers of petrol floating on top of water, the varying oil thicknesses creating different textures.

By taking the time to observe and experiment with this unpredictable liquid, the play of colours and textures are revealed, creating what looks like jewellery, fine silk or distant galaxies.
