Australian photographer Deb Morris is a master of micro wave photography. While her brand of photography isn’t a globally popularized branch of the medium, it is absolutely breathtaking and bound to lead more photographers to discovering its visually magnetic allure. Her innovative collection known as WAVEART features shots that get in close to capture the magnificence of the most subtle ripples of water, turning them into majestic swirls of light.
Morris, who also goes by DebM, goes beyond photographing the average wave by focusing on tidal flows that are no larger than 30cm. She immerses herself in the movement of each minuscule body of water, brilliantly composing the tiny tides both at their peak and when they break. The photographer is also able to visualize the multitude of colors in any given environment, as echoed through each wave’s naturally reflective surface. DebM’s portfolio is filled with stunning images that are so sharp, catching quick movements that go unnoticed to the naked eye, that they look more like gleaming sheets of delicately curled glass than actual rolling waves.
