Amazing Japanese artist and photographer Hiroshi Sugimoto is the man behind these high voltage photos. Without fear, Sugimoto casts up to 400,000 volts of electricity through film via a Van de Graaf generator. The resulting images display erratic trails not unlike those found in nature.

Hiroshi Sugimoto has a passion for unseen phenomena, and in this, his latest creation 'The Lightning Fields' we can confirm that his passion sparks the imagination.
