Photographer Uses Liquid Nitrogen in ‘Shattered Flowers’ Series

Jon Shireman

New York-based fine art photographer Jon Shireman has turned the concept of a traditional still life on its head more than once before, but this time he does it in an explosive way. For his Broken Flowers series, the photographer soaked various flowers in liquid nitrogen for up to 30 minutes before launching them into a hard surface and photographing their beautiful demise.
