“One of the main theories why perfect circles cannot exist in reality is due to outside influences like gravity, or the irregular texture of the surface the shape is projected onto,” Thomas Brown tells Co.Design. The London-based photographer teamed up with set designers and prop makers Anna Fulmine and Victoria Shahrokh of Lightning + Kinglyface to play with the inconsistency of precision through a series of stunning, and entirely temporal, tableaus. “We wanted to experiment with the idea that the pursuit of absolute perfection would only end in failure—but it was the failure we were really striving for, in terms of beauty and aesthetics,” he says of 2-(y-b)2 = r2 (guess the equation), the resulting series that sees rounds emerging—and fading—in a whole host of mediums and materials.
