South African Photographer Bruce Boyd & Tharien Smith Lens Frozen Flowers In 0˚C

South African photographer Bruce Boyd is fascinated by images of known objects distorted in ice blocks. Boyd and his girlfriend artist Tharien Smith have launched a three-part series 0˚C -- Zero Degrees -- involving 3 phases of water,  ice, steam as filters, the medium or canvas for the display of objects. 

Boyd writes of his and Smith's project: "In 0˚C (Zero Degrees), we use ice as a medium to display the beauty of flowers. I find it fascinating that ice can preserve something and at the same time also enhance or distort the beauty of it. For a few fleeting moments, we are treated to this preserved beauty, the past encapsulated perfectly, before the ice melts and flowers wilt."
