Chaotic Beauty of Flower Explosions by Martin Klimas

What does it look like when something as delicate as a flower explodes into a million pieces? Photographer Martin Klimas is behind this fascinating series called Rapid Bloom where he drops flowers into liquid nitrogen and then shoots them with an air gun from behind.
