ABOUT THE WORK
These are not your ordinary floral photographs. They are high-speed shots taken at the moment of impact between the ammunition shot from a pellet gun and a chemically frozen flower. When I freeze these beautiful specimens with liquid nitrogen, they become brittle, allowing them to shatter, fracture, and crack in unusual ways. Shooting these flowers creates an explosion of energy, motion and color that only exists in a brief moment in time.
