The Stars Within Us
Project info

Look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see, and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious. (Stephen Hawking)

This series was inspired by the stars. The cosmos is within us. We are made of star stuff, the stellar origins of the chemical elements of life, which are cooked in the interiors of stars, then released in supernova explosions into interstellar space where they condense into a new solar system with planets, some of which have life that is composed of this star stuff. We are made out of stars.

The photos were exposed to light for 10 seconds and a strobe light (1 flash per sec). It was a rainy day at a beach and with the flashlight the raindrops look like stars somehow.
