A fireworks festival at Oban in Scotland went awry, releasing the entire load of explosives (meant for a half hour long show) at once. So, minus one very nice well-produced fireworks show. Plus one "Minute-long-spark-and-boom Party".
These photographs are from Alan Salier, who uses a laser-activated flash system to capture these impacts from an air rifle just as they hit the target. The photos are often violent in their subtext, but with a bizarre hint of playfulness from the "targets" Salier chooses to shoot. Check out more in the gallery below!
