The artist Thomas Jackson has created many works in the past of his famous floating photography series. He has now introduced a new series of work that showcases his collision of suspended objects photographed in mid-air.

These images are usually taken outdoors in low-lighting areas with no sun to focus on the suspended objects. Some of the materials he uses in these images are glows ticks, neon paper post-it notes, plates, marshmallows and cups. They are regular objects hovered in place to create a floating effect as they are thrown in action.

Thomas Jackson illustrates a powerful illusion that captures moving objects in real time. Floating photography has definitely become an interesting artistic technique that Jackson can intentionally display in many of his works today.
