Black Hole: Photographs of Paint Flung by Centrifugal Force by Fabian Oefner paint high speed

Spinning paint, by Swiss photographer Fabian Oefner. Using a modified power drill, Oefner captures flinging paint at just the right moment.

The motion of the paint happens in a blink of an eye, the images you see are taken only millisecond after the drill was turned on. To capture the moment, where the paint forms that distinctive shape, I connected a sensor to the drill, which sends an impulse to the flashes. These specialized units are capable of creating flashes as short as a 1/40000 of a second, freezing the motion of the paint.
