Photographer Turns Ordinary Household Materials into Swirling Nebulae and Sparkling Galaxies
Inspired by images from the Hubble space telescope, Brooklyn photographer Navid Baraty, created a series of fictional space scenes for his "Wander" project by arranging common household materials such as food coloring, salt, sugar and baking powder, onto an Epson scanner. Many of them are entirely edible. The ingredients of each scan are listed in the caption below each image. Pictured: Nebula made from makeup, olive oil, chalk, baby powder, salt, water.
