Underwater Ink Photography: Mark Mawson's Aqueous Series

Photographer Mark Mawson shot these amazing photographs by dropping paint into water. The following photos are part of his photo series called 'Aqueous'. More after the jump...

Mark Mawson has a very interesting portfolio, and part of his awesome work is the Aqueous series — A collection of underwater ink photographs in which he drops paint in a tank of water and quickly captures the myriad of patterns that the paint creates.

These incredibly stunning photos of vibrant, smoke-ish color patterns made me stare for minutes and minutes. And the longer I stare, the more I feel hypnotized by them. Listening to Speed, Glue & Shinki – a Japanese psychedelic garage band, sort of amplified my amazement over the photos. It’s like cloud painting where you imagine and form shapes when looking at the clouds.
