Delicate Bouquets Frozen in Water

Dutch photographer and product designer Anne ten Donkelaar tied bits and baubles to weigh bouquets of fresh cut flowers down for her “Underwater Ballet” series. Suspended in a tank, the flowers perform a stilted choreography for her camera, posing for the shot with webs of air bubbles and floating particles mingling with the organic matter. The bundles seem to defy gravity, frozen in their place. See more from photographers, designers, and other creatives redefining a classic form in our book The Still Life
