Heinz Maier and Brian Valentine . A drop of beauty.

November 17, 2011

There are some amazing photographers who currently show their work on Flickr. I find it such a rich

and free source of visual inspiration. Here are two guys who’s work I came across recently.

Initially Heinz Maier who is based in Leinzell, Germany. Heinz started macro photography in 2010.

Working with insects and more interestingly (to me anyway) is his work with water droplets.

It’s hard to believe that these aren’t made of Venetian Glass or digitally created.

They make me think of delicate jellyfish and fragile seahorses like these from JLV and Kenyee.

In a different way, the work of Brian Valentine (who goes under the name of Lord V on Flickr) has an

equal sense of beauty and detail.

There’s a wealth of shots of Brian’s work online here, including plants and insect close ups.

    Those water droplets look like weird jelly fish or toadstools. Amazing!

      Jelly fish for sure, kind of weird and wonderful at the same time.

    These guys are phenomenal! Some of them look like hand-blown glass creations.

      I know Terry and to think it’s drops of water captured by photography is equally as impressive eh
