Stanislav Aristov’s match art was born when he was unable to come up with an idea for a photo competition. He lit a match (out of boredom, I assume, since he doesn’t smoke) and observed the patterns formed by the flame. He found out that the burned wood also had artistic potential. He has had no professional exhibitions yet, but his work is slowly getting international attention over the internet.
I love my dogs, reading books, and taking great pictures with my battered but still functional digital camera. Taking great pictures with a high end camera is almost too easy, producing fantastic images with an outdated one is an accomplishment by itself.
