Thomas Jackson is known for his eclectic photography series that captures everyday objects hovering in the air. He is continuing with this series titled ‘Emergent Behavior,’ and has come out with more captivating photographs. This series is a magical combination of mostly man-made items and some nature.
Jackson uses colorful objects against dark backgrounds. His newest photographs feature glow sticks, cheese balls, post-its, plates and leaves. The neon glow sticks light up a luminous sky and sea background. The cheese ball photo swarms around a tree, resembling a fungus that might be found there. His post-its photo brightens up a shadowy forest. The plate photo is very playful and child-like.
Different from some of the other works is his leaves photo, where he instead uses an object found in nature against man-made, concrete buildings.
On Jackson’s site he says, “By constructing the pieces from unexpected materials and placing them in environments where they to least belong, I aim to tweak the margins of our visual vocabulary, and to invite fresh interpretations of everyday things.”
His works are very alluring and definitely worth checking out.
