San Francisco based still-life and product photographer Rob Prideaux captures this stunning series of fire portraits. Known for his ability to glamourize ambiguous and grotesque subject matter, the visionary artist finds beauty in burning flame imagery.

Rob Prideaux captures the varying facets of a burning fire and zooms in on the multi-dimensional properties of a flame and the cloud of smoke that surrounds it. His visual experiment results in a gorgeous study of color tones and a dimensional perspective views of smoke movements and shapes.

While the photographer's stunning collection features a majority of lone fire views, he also experiments with images of enflamed polymer materials and even captures symbolic still-life portraits of a burning book element.
