Powder by Marcel Christ, a photographer based in New York and Amsterdam, is an ongoing photo series that involves brightly colored powder, hence its title. At first, the Dutch artist shot this material against a white background, by switching to a black one, the effect is much more drastic. Now the powder looks as explosive and mesmerizing as fireworks in a night sky.

Utilizing his background in chemical engineering and photography, Powder by Marcel Christ is a powerfully dynamic series of work. According to his bio, "His clean modern lighting and confident execution of imaginative concepts transforms even the most mundane items into art forms. Nothing is still in his work. Everything moves, jumps, flies, like in a memorable one-frame movie."
