Broken Flower by Jon Shireman

Jon Shireman used flowers soaked in liquid nitrogen that shattered on impact to create his series Broken Flower.

Photographer Jon Shireman soaked various kinds of flowers in a liquid nitrogen bath for up to 30 minutes before using a special spring-loaded contraption to slam them against a surface at high speed. He then photographed the hundreds of fragments spread across a white surface like sharp glass shards. Beautiful!
