Photographer Splits Fireworks In Half To Reveal What’s Inside

Published 5 years ago

The Fourth of July celebration gives probably the greatest feast to one’s eyes with thousands of colour fountains sparkling in the America’s night sky. Seattle-based photographer Andrew Waits introduces a different kind of look into the main attribute of the celebration – fireworks. In his photo series called “Boom City” he shows the actual contents hiding inside a group of the most popular firecrackers in USA.

From the first glance, the split fireworks in the photographs look nothing like dangerous explosive chemical mixtures they really are. Only the telltale wicks show that these colourful powders and tubes are something that from a single spark of fire can cause a picturesque sight up in the sky, only if used safely, of course.
