Broken flowers, by photographer Jon Shireman

For his Broken Flowers series, photographer Jon Shireman soaked fresh flowers in liquid nitrogen for 30 minutes before smashing them into hundreds of little glass-like pieces. Displayed against a white background, the blooms look like floral fireworks!

The result is beautiful and quite unique.

Jon described the project as ‘Great fun’ and says ‘I like to turn the idea of traditional flower still lifes on its head sometimes’.

May they rest in pieces… :)
