Martin Klimas uses a special technique that allows him to snap a vase within a 7000th of a second and at the same time photograph the cut flowers in their full glory. The artist plays here with the vanitas idea in the genre of still life, that is, with the transience of all things, as well as with the cryptic phrase of the snapshot in describing the photographer's craft. With his high-speed photography, the artist brings extreme movement and absolute stillness together, which, however, only occurs in the frozen photo itself. The subject is in darkness when the shot is taken - only with the shot is a flash of light also triggered, showing the flowers in all their glory at the moment of their symbolic destruction.
