Martin Klimas Photographs Flower Vases Exploding at High Speed

Photographer Martin Klimas is back again with another in his ongoing series of high speed photography. We previously showed you when he took some incredible images of shattering porcelain dolls; this time it’s flower vases. But rather than drop them, this time Klimas has caused their explosion by shooting them with steel balls. The photographs capture what happens in just a seventh of a second in time.

But what’s important is the contrasting effect that remains. While the top half of the photograph features a still and serene beautiful flower, the bottom half has become utter chaos. What once was as calm as the top half is now an explosion of energy and a destruction of harmony. They have shattered into thousands of pieces, leaving a sense of triteness to the vases and the flowers they once held. In one brief moment, a single picture contains two distinct states of being.
