Nature + Nitrogen: Jon Shireman’s Broken Flowers

New York Photographer Jon Shireman just blew my mind with his new series, “Broken Flowers.”  Shireman soaked a variety of flowers in liquid nitrogen (which causes rapid freezing) before catapulting them into a white surface via a spring loaded device developed especially for the occasion.  As the fragile petals shattered like porcelain, Shireman photographed the debris.  Stunning.

Check out the full series on Shireman’s flickr site.

FYI: I promised I would let you know when I finally made the move to Pinterest and now I have.  You can follow me here.
