Check out , Russian photographer Stanislav Aristov’s matches series (http://500px.com/PolTergejst) to see some amazing work with the simple match. “ To create these sculptures, he bends and molds the matches while they’re burning. He then photographs them, as well as the flames and smoke, using a macro lens and a studio flash.” How all this is done would be very interesting to watch.
For Stanislav, the burning matches represent life: “there is the burnt part representing the past, the smoke of memories and the untouched part of the match the future…the fire is life.”
