Milk Drop Coronet, 1957 by Harold Edgerton
.
.
"Making art out of scientific evidence. .
Engineer Edgerton was experimenting with strobe lights and camera shutter motors when he caught the moment a drop of milk hit a table surface, something that is imperceptible to the naked eye. .
The picture proved that photography could advance human understanding of the physical world, and the technology Edgerton used to take it laid the foundation for the modern electronic flash, changing the future of photography." .

"I love his elaborately staged photographs that are so rich in detail. The combination of visual detail and narrative in this particular picture triggers a lot of emotions in me."

TODAY ON NOWNESS.com : GREAT GARDENS: JARDIN EN CÉVENNES
.
A look inside the flourishing valley oasis of French designer @pascalbraultt .

Director Toby Amies (@tobyamies) talks about visiting the verdant South of France garden of Chanel (@chanelofficial) designer Pascal Brault. .
.
Here amid a range of mountains, Brault shares a holiday home with his husband, set designer Stéfan Lubrina, and their border terrier Frickey:
.
. "Pascal’s beautiful garden is more about letting nature at its best affect the person who visits it, rather than a gardener affecting nature. All too often a formal garden represents our vanity in thinking we can exert real, lasting control over the natural world, but Pascal’s paradise in Cévennes is a playful dance in which nature is the leader, and the better for it. .
.
"It was a enormous privilege to be there, but I also felt like the garden was designed to express our human right to be at rest and stare up at the simple beauty of a green canopy or bite down on a delicious blue tomato."

Photographers in Focus: Mustafah Abdulaziz
.
Going deep with the Berlin-based photographer's all-encompassing project about the earth's water
.
Berlin-based photographer Mustafah Abulaziz has spent the last five years in a singular exploration of the world’s relationship to water. Returning to his Brooklyn roots, an exhibition of his work has launched as an illuminating series of lightboxes in Brooklyn Bridge Park beside New York’s East River—as part of annual photography festival Photoville. A collaboration between NGOs Earthwatch, WaterAid, WWF and HSBC’s global water programme, Abulaziz’s Water Stories—a series that forms part of his wider project about water—sheds light on the human and environmental impacts of the earth's most precious resource.
