Martin Klimas is the colorful and creative hybrid of photographers Eadweard Muybridge and Dr. Harold Edgerton. Through his own experimentation with the simultaneous states of motion and stillness, Klimas’ photographs explore the relationship between time, beauty and destruction. 

In his work with Nymphenburg Porcelain, Klimas uses a fast acting strobe light and a single camera frame to capture a falling and then shattering figurine. In his series Flowers, a spring-fired projectile bursts the base of the vase into a bedlam of fragmented pieces. In each photograph, Klimas shows the transformation of solid object into one that is in between, a temporary sculpture that comes together for a moment, creating a comforting notion that something beautiful can be created out of chaos.

In his latest work, Klimas creates and photographs full range spectrums in abstract and geometric patterns by using radiant foils and reflective materials through a delicate polarization process.
