Oefner says on his website that his work often captures the aesthetic sparkle of scientific phenomena. The Swiss photographer placed light and refractors around the bubbles to capture the full spectrum of their iridescent glow.

We are sure the recording of a bubble's short and beautiful life is no easy feat, and we applaud Oefner's patience and eye for detail.
