The Porcelain Figurines Project – The Culmination Of High-Speed Photography

Martin Klimas (previously) is a fine art photographer based in Dusseldorf, Germany. Drawing inspiration from photographers and inventors such as Eadweard Muybridge and Dr. Harold Edgerton, Klimas uses the latest technological advancements in high-speed photography to capture a split-second of movement.

Through this compelling series, titled Porcelain Figurines, he captures the exact point at which sculptures of warriors, dragons, and other symbolic figures hit the ground and shatter into countless fragments. Aside from the striking visuals that Klimas produces, the broken figurines symbolize time made visible. He is “obsessed” with this notion because it encapsulates the idea into a single image.

“To catch something out of the flow of time, to find the perfect moment” – Klimas explains – “is what photographers are forever looking for.”
