The whisky-sediment patterns are like snowflakes; each has a unique design. They all, however, are light gray until Button lights them with multicolored lamps. The gray lines and swirls spring to life and make the rich designs resemble colorful landscapes of planets and moons. "I think of it as drinks and a show," he says. Through trial and error, Button found that only Scotch whiskies accumulate enough sediment. The oldest he's photographed is a 25-year-old whisky. (Verdict: no big difference.)
In contrast to photographers who shoot epic scenes in exotic locales, Button looks inward and stays local. Before photographing spirits, he created landscapes with breakfast cereal boxes and chronicled the disappearance of coin-operated rides at grocery stores. Button's work proves there are wild things to be observed in everyday life, even in dirty dishes.
Any celestial body might have its creation story-but how many come with a recipe? Consider the moonlike images here, which actually are pancakes. As they prepared breakfast, web designer Nadine Schlieper and photographer Robert Pufleb were struck by the lunar features they saw in pancakes, from the cratering bubbles as the batter fried to the mottled finished product. The pair ended up making and photographing scores of hotcakes, and reflecting on how images can mislead. They called their project Alternative Moons, in a play on "alternative facts," a term coined by a Trump White House spokesperson. Schlieper and Pufleb turned the project into a book, complete with the pancake recipe below; the book won first prize at the Vienna PhotoBook Festival in 2017.
Alternative Moons Pancakes
The objects in Christopher Jonassen's photo project look like they might be found in deep space. In reality, the Norwegian photographer found them deep in kitchen cabinets and campers' mess kits. That's why Jonassen titled the project
Although they resemble planets, the orbs are the homely bottoms of cooking pots and pans. Jonassen's been taking the photos since 2003, inspired by kitchen items in a home he was sharing. The beat-up utensils told stories of everyday use and the wear and tear it causes-and yet theyhad an otherworldly beauty. Over the years Jonassen has photographed hundreds of pans and revealed what he calls "the planets hidden inside," using only lighting and basic Photoshop to heighten the effects. Some of his favorites sprang from utensils that served especially rough duty: the pots and pans that Boy Scouts used when cooking over campfires.
