Twin Roses
OPEN EDITION CANVAS  Canvas

NOTES: Roses are one of my all-time favorite flower "models." They ended up being the perfect flower to freeze. One of the challenges with freezing the flowers is getting clear ice. Any impurities in the water will end up clouding the ice. This goes with whatever liquid is inside the flower and stem as well. Typically flowers sold in a store have added preservatives to make the blooms look nice for an extended period of time. Great for the vase, bad for the ice. The flowers on sale were at a bargain price with little preservatives. I wanted to select a single rose for the photo and was basing my decision on the condition of the flower. I couldn"t decide between the two because they looked so similar . . . so I used both and titled it Twin Roses..

Mo Devlin bio

Mo Delvin s journey into photography began in 1973 when he joined the U.S. Army as a photo journalist. He is an avid aquarist and renowned aquatic photographer for over thirty years. A past president of the American Cichlid Association he maintains close to 3,000 gallons of freshwater tropical fish tanks in his Pennsylvania home. His photographs and articles appear frequently in his blog, "Today in the Fishroom" as well as publications including Tropical Fish Hobbyist, Amazonas, Redfish and hobby magazines around the world. Devlin perfected the art of photographing fish in their aquatic environment. Mastering the dynamic of how light travels through water was only the first of many steps in the frozen flower process. That intense sense of spontaneity Devlin captures is the result of a very deliberate process. These images are not simply stumbled upon, but meticulously created. Freezing his "models" is the most important part of the process. When tap water is frozen the impurities show themselves as clouded white ice. Devlin experiments and continues to perfect his ability to control the outcome of how the ice forms and captures the subject. Sometimes the bloom itself can be the source of impurity. Any substance, natural or added to the plant, may cause large areas of clouded ice. Blooms with high sap or sugar content or flowers purchased that have been given a preservative, pose the biggest challenge. One thing that occurs and is cultivated through his photos is the appearance of "ice trailers." These are simply bubbles that have been squeezed out of the organic material then stretched as the freezing process continued. The science behind their formation is amazing. Flowers add to any room a feeling of beauty and grace. They are delicate beings, alive with sensuality. Mo Devlin s Frozen Flowers capture all that and more. The ice adds a "look again" dimension to this gorgeous photography that draws us in and fires our imagination.
