You could be forgiven for thinking these photographs are something not of this world; an unnatural, imaginative manipulation that simply introduces colour and scale to create a composition miles away from the usual. Here’s the thing though, these photographs are unadulterated, capturing the vivid splendour of Hutt Lagoon in Australia.
Taken from an aircraft over an extensive time period, Steve Back has created a collection of photographs that depicts the process of vast micro algae production. The Lagoon produces these vibrant colour hues through a natural, organic process that taints the water with what looks like an artists pallet. What’s notable throughout Steve’s portfolio of work and this series is his technical precision that uses methods of perspective to emphasise a mesmerising visual event, creating powerful images that live with the viewer long after first viewing them.
