German photographer Martin Klimas has a great technique for high impact shots. He releases ceramic figurines from a certain height in the dark. When they hit the ground, the sound causes the lights to suddenly go on and the moment is captured. Klimas goes through a lot of figurines for the cause and of course each explosive moment is different. Klimas’ photography begs the question: is it still life or action? Apart from the technical attraction of this series, there is also the matter of brazenly doing something we have always tried to avoid to doing.
