Smoke has been the object of artistic investigation for quite some time now and these days, smoke photography is even its own subgenre. With smoke’s alluring quality and ghostly twirls, how could it not be?
Smoke, when captured at just the right moment, as it is in this image by Tatev Ghulyan (@tatevghulyan9), is absolutely electrifying. The best part about it is that, like with an ink blot test, its abstract quality leaves it entirely open to interpretation about the forms it resembles and how its gestures translate.
Different people will, of course, spot different things, and so we ask you practice exercising your creative muscles in our #FTESmoke contest to spot something new in this photograph and reinterpret it into new contexts. Check out the Up in Smoke clipart package, available in the PicsArt Shop, if you’re looking for additional inspiration. Let’s see what you can make out of this smoky situation!
