Drive through the American West long enough and even the most spectacular vistas get lost in a sea of repetition. Photography duo Floto+Warner’s Colourant series introduces a splash, literally, of color to these sometimes monotonic landscapes.
Floating ••••• 🌏 Here's a photo @just_robbie took of me today. He, @mollyreas and I ventured to the cliffs near North Head. Ultimately it was an unsuccessful sunset mission but the view was breathtaking even without the sky's beautiful spectrum of colours. I'm editing a little Instagram video of it for tomorrow so stay tuned for that. 😅 Hopefully it'll be good! Hope you're well. Stay happy!!
Suminagashi (sue-me-NAH-gah-she) literally means “floating ink” and is an ancient form of Japanese marbling dating back over 800 years. Colored inks are floated on a bath of clear water and then gently manipulated into delicate patterns. Paper is carefully laid on top of the water to absorb the colors and then lifted. This is a form of monoprinting where no two prints will be exactly the same.
