William LeGoullon took on the role of photographer and bartender in his latest series, "Fingerprints of Drinkable Culture." Exploring his fascination with man-made beverages, he put the five most popular drinks (hint) under a microscope and photographed them. See if you can guess which is which below!
“Stemming from my work as both an artist and as a barista and bartender, my interest is in concocting a recipe of beverage culture, art, and science with regard to what we as humans consume. I am continually inspired by observing what has been left behind and the clues that inspire examination. In this series, I treat the world’s top five most consumed man-made beverages like scientific specimens, allowing each liquid sample to dry before photographing them using a microscope. The resulting images provide us with a chance to analyze these fingerprints of drinkable culture as an act of art consumption.”
Look closely; can you tell which drink is which? Try your luck and comment below! ;-)

As a wildlife cameraman and photographer, Ian Llewellyn has worked on a number of television projects.

Reminiscent of traveling photographers of the 19th century, Giles Clement tours through the country with his assistant, Zeiss (an Irish Terrier), offering everything from portrait sessions to wildly creative photographic projects for magazines and companies. And although his mode of transportation may have evolved with the times, his photographic method and gear have changed very little compared to the photographers of days past. Now, with over 3 years of tintyping experience under his belt and an impressive list of clients, he's carved a name out for himself as an accomplished tintyper and continues to spread his passion for this ages-old technique everywhere he goes.
