Smoke rings and wisps of smoke floating in the air against a black background, revealing the abstract visual qualities of commonplace things. At once abstract and hyperrealistic, this photograph is as much about the visual play of white forms on black as it is about the beauty to be found in the ordinary world.Physical Description
Square black and white photograph depicting three smoke rings that float in the air against a black backdrop. The rings appear in a diagonal pattern, one in the lower left corner, one in the center and one in the upper right corner. The ring in the lower left hand corner appears to be more complete, while the other two are more abstract.Primary Object Classification Photograph Primary Object Typeblack and white printAdditional Object Classification(s)PhotographCollection AreaPhotographyRights
