Epic Action Photos of Porcelain Figurines Shattering Against the Ground

For his project titled “Porcelain Figurines”, photographer Martin Klimas dropped various porcelain figurines onto the ground from a height of 3 meters and set up a camera to capture photos triggered by the sound of the crash. The result are razor-sharp images of exploding figurines frozen in time — “temporary sculptures made visible to the human eye by high-speed photography”.

You can find more of Klimas’ work over on his website.
