Freeze! The arresting Frozen Flowers of Mo Devlin are an overnight success decades in the making. These photographs bend on its ear the notion that “set in ice” means stiff and rigid. It is the ice itself, or more accurately the process through which the ice forms, that adds such fluidity and motion to Devlin’s brilliant compositions.

The intense sense of spontaneity Devlin captures is the result of a very deliberate process. These images are not simply stumbled upon, but meticulously created. Over the course of decades, 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.

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 experimented 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.
