At first glance, Steve Back’s photography is confusing, ambiguous and completely mesmerizing— his mission accomplished. As an engineer turned commercial photographer, Back’s complimentary skills have most recently resulted in a concentration of images taken from an aircraft while traveling over Hutt Lagoon in Kalbarri, Western Australia. Captured over the course of three years, the un-doctored photos are a striking representation of the largest micro algae production plant in the world. Reflecting hues from bright orange to hot pink, the seemingly un-natural colors are the fortunate consequence of an organically produced beta carotene in the water— so vibrant it’s sourced as food coloring. Challenging the imagination through scope and scale, Back’s remarkable collection evokes a sense of tranquility as unearthly dreamscapes give the viewer a visual escape from the familiar and an introduction to the extraordinary.
