I guess I've been on a photography kick lately. This series of images, entitled "Dust," was put together by photographers Ujin Lee and Tom Edwards, both known individually for a variety of photography styles-- mostly revolving around capturing heavily-make upped skeletal fashion models. The photographs in "Dust" however, have a murcurial, magnetic quality that draws your eye in to these seemingly placid scenes. The Dust itself to me plays out like an unwanted phantom in each piece, the subtle ghost that passes through the room when no one watches. The sensless lack of design of the dust in the air is welcoming in its visual interest as it is unsettling. As a side note, before Lee and Edwards put together the "Dust" series, they combined the same concept (throw dust in the air, photograph it) to the aformentioned skinny fashion model staple, covering some girls in expensive clothes with pink dust. Needless to say, the effect was not the same.
