Burning Blue with Reuben Wu

08.10.2015

Chicago-based photographer Reuben Wu recently took some incredible shots of blue molten sulphur at the base of an Indonesian volcano. The Blue Fire Crater in Ijen, East Java, is the largest “blue flame” area on Earth.

“In my visual work, I am driven not just by the urge to create imagery, but by a desire to explore new places as if they were unknown territory, constantly open to serendipity and with an eye for the unnoticed and the hidden,” says Wu.
