[Slingshot John Milligan Scrambling an Egg - Almost Gone]

Description: Photograph of an egg in mid-explosion from a slingshot ball. In the image John Milligan stands in the background holding the slingshot in position while the exploded egg takes up the foreground of the image showing crisp detail of the shattered object. Narrative by Junebug Clark: In this photo the "scrambled egg" has almost completely exploded itself out of the picture frame. "There is kind of a beauty to each fraction of a second that the slingshot ball hits and makes its way through the target." All of these photos were made with a 4x5 camera which meant that you had just one shot. What you shot was what you got. Then it was time to reload and try again. Timing was critical. You never really knew what you had until hours later when the film was processed and you could look at the negatives being pulled out of the fixer and into the wash.
