These photos are from Jon Shireman’s “Broken Flowers“. He soaked the flowers in liquid nitrogen and then shattered them for his 2010 series.

What do you think of them? Is it too weird a concept?

Photoshoots I’ve loved #15

This week on the fifteenth post in my series on “photo-shoots I’ve loved”, its David Jordan’s long exposure, out of focus images of fireworks. I’m always fascinated by long-exposure photographs so I think these are amazing, they look like abstract paintings. (They wouldn’t look out-of-place on a gallery wall either – it’s the wannabe curator in me coming out!). The composition is perfect, the viewer is immediately drawn towards the middle of the photograph, to the centre of the firework.

What do you think of them? Do you think they are too “arty”?
