Photographer Richard Heeks has made an art out of two rather mundane things put together. Simple reflections of everyday life and ordinary soap bubbles. Together they combine to create lovely little globes reflecting images of the world around us. Heeks initially found inspiration for his bubble art from the 1982 movie, Blade Runner. That movie featured a close-up shot of a landscape reflected in an eye. This was bolstered by a photo session he had when taking close-up shots of his wife’s own eyes. During that pictorial his nieces were playing with soap bubbles in the yard and he noticed the charming reflections being mirrored by the little globes. It was at this point that he connected the dots of both eyes and bubbles as reflections of the world.
Most parents, especially with the proliferation of digital cameras document all there is to take of their growing children. Arguably, this generation of children (and henceforth) will perhaps have the most comprehensive images of their growing years, more than all those that came before them. Kate T. Parker is one such parent, and being a professional photographer, raises the bar. She captures her two children in lovely images during the early stages of their childhood. Shot mostly in black and white, the photos have a vintage look to them, complete with the imperfect grainy texture so common to the film medium.
