These flowers have lifespans of mere milliseconds. Jack Long, a Milwaukee-based photographer coaxed them to life using water, a thickening agent, pigment, and dye. What’s even more remarkable is that this series, entitled “Vessels and Blooms” was not digitally manipulated in any way. All of Jack’s images occurred in a single exposure. Beautiful these fleeting flowers may be, I’d hate to be the one to clean up his studio.
