After graduating Wheaton College, Los Angeles-based Alex Hoerner worked for renowned photographers Nadav Kander, Terry Richardson, and Jeff Riedel. Hoerner’s personal and commercial work has always been hitched to two similar themes, that of opposition and juxtaposition. These images were originally shown under the title "Surface Tension", at Gallery 169 in Los Angeles. It’s a play on the scientific phenomenon, but it’s also something magical. As the artist develops, “often I'm asked if the bubbles are real or if I shot them separately from the background, or If’ they've been altered somehow, which is a totally reasonable question as this work doesn't seem possible in nature, but it is. A series of images that originated on the impulse to capture a fleeting moment, no two bubbles are the same and a level control becomes more a practice in acceptance.
