Flower Explosions by Martin Klimas


What does it look like when something as delicate as a flower explodes into a million pieces? Photographer Martin Klimas is behind this fascinating series called Rapid Bloom where he drops flowers into liquid nitrogen and then shoots them with an air gun from behind. Klimas wanted to show the flower, in its entirety, in one single shot, a flower in full bloom turned into a fascinating piece of abstract art.

You may remember the name Martin Klimas. He's also the one behind the fun series What Does Music Look Like? that showed colorful paint jumping and dancing to the sound of music.
