The "Bronze reflections" series shows the beginning of my research of color and textures. Photographs represent a closer look at bronze sculptures made by Ukrainian sculptor Nazar Bilyk in 2022. I was attracted by the rich gamma of colors and reflections on bronze. This colorful effect was achieved by burning polished metal with a fire thrower by the sculptor. Photographs were made with the macro lens.
