Powdery Trails

Because air and water are colorless and transparent, we cannot see most of the flows around us – but they’re always there. In a recent series, photographer Jess Bell has been capturing images of jumping dogs trailing a colorful powder wake. There’s no compositing in the photos. Bell puts powder on the dogs, then photographs them as they jump. The results show the billowing, turbulent wakes left by the dogs. I particularly like how you can see the stream of powder coming from some of the dogs’ ears. For more of Bell’s work, check out her website and Instagram. (Image credit: J.
