Earlier this month was United States Independence day which means lots and lots of fireworks. For the rest of us who are fireworks-challenged, photographer Andrew Waits provides some insights on how those flowers of fire are built.

Seattle-based Andrew created Boom City – a photo series of cross-sectioned fireworks showing their interiors against a black background.

For me it was a surprise that most of those crackers were actually quite simple – a fuse, a charge and some powder.

    Nice if you said what each is, I know most, and some are incomplete.

    Trying to imagine being the guy with an X-acto knife, slowly slicing these open, hoping they don’t spark and sever a finger! A very clever and well done series.
