Linden Gledhill is a biochemist turned photographer that likes to make paint dance. Using a high speed camera — a 10 megpix Nikon D200, to be exact, and crazy vibrant colors, Gledhill’s portraits are made of water based paints responding from the sound of a speaker.

It’s hard to believe that the formations captured in each frame are not solid sculptures of plastic… instead, the subject is caught in time before falling into rainbow colored puddles…

Gather shapes, colors, sounds, movements and ideas into a single performance was a creative way to create an ephemeral art, but unusual.

The renowned advertising agency Dentsu – one of the largest in the world – in partnership with photographer Linden Gledhill decided to unite all these elements to promote the Canon Pixma printers. The result is a competent brand campaign, with a visual art and very interesting.
