A Cosmos Revealed in the "Ordinary" Everyday World
de Photographs by Andy Ilachinski
The images in this photo portfolio collectively weave an extraordinary and mysterious cosmos out of the ostensibly "ordinary" everyday world.
The project that produced these photographs cannot have started more innocently or unexpectedly. One day, as my family and I were sitting down to dinner, my wife placed two small acrylic candle holders on the table and reached for some matches to light the candles.
A veritable universe of nested "worlds within worlds" of trapped air bubbles immediately grabbed hold of my eye, my soul, and - of course - my camera.
A selection of these images have been published as a featured portfolio in Lenswork (Issue #76, May/June 2008).
A Ph.D. physicist specializing in modeling complex adaptive systems by day, Andy is a published photographer who spends most of his free time with a camera. A founding member of Lorton Arts Foundation's Workhouse Photographic Society in 2009 (near Occoquan, VA), his photographs have won numerous awards, have been exhibited in many juried solo and group shows, hang in galleries, businesses, and private homes, and have appeared in numerous publications. Featured in Lenswork four times, spotlighted in B&W magazine twice, multiple-time finalist in the prestigious B&W Spider Awards, and published on many on-line magazines and blogs (including Luminous Landscape and Shadow & Light magazine), Andy has also been featured in Stone Voices magazine and won the international book contest sponsored by the UK Black + White Photography magazine in 2007. His blog (started in 2004) has been named one of the top 100 photography blogs by Photography Colleges
