Russian artist Stanislav Aristov in his series “Спички” (Russian for “matchsticks”). He contorts the sticks as they burn, and then shoots the flame and smoke with a macro lens. He finishes the images in photoshop.
“I was playing with a pack of matches while I was deciding what to photograph for a competition. It was while I was watching the match that I began to think of how it represents life. There is the burnt part representing the past, the smoke of memories left and the untouched part of the match the future.”
