Who knew getting hit with a water balloon could be so beautiful? Photographer Tim Tadder recently released his latest project, Water Wigs, which features a bunch of bald men getting hit with water balloons.
Seriously. Tadder and his artistic buddies gathered up a bunch of bald dudes and threw water balloons at them. They took a bunch of pictures and created a new water wig for each person.
“The concept is simple and it is another visual exploration of something new and totally different. We found a bunch of awesome bald men and hurled water balloons at their heads, to capture the explosion of water at various intervals. The result a new head of of water hair! We used a laser and sound trigger to capture the right moments for each subject to create just the head of hair that fit best with the face.”
Tadder created more than a dozen water wig portraits. You can see the entire collection on his website or check out a few of the coolest images below.
Tadder bills himself as a “visual communicator.” He’s created some really cool campaigns for Budweiser, Adidas, and Gatorade.
