Edward Horsford is a London based designer, technologist and photographer rolled into one. With an interest in hacking, breaking and making, his high speed photographs of balloons bursting are almost ethereal. Having studied industrial design, Horsford created his own high speed trigger to create the photographs, often planning each shot for hours and hours in advance in order to get the look just so. Using a combination of strobe lights and balloons filled with dyed water, he manages to produce some truly fascinating shots in his ‘Balloons’ series.
