This collection of photographs is an addition to the Vienna-based studio's earlier installment of broken crystal pictures titled 'Metamorphosen.' As an extension of the previous collection, 'Metamorphosen II' expands upon the artistic integrity behind the energy released when something becomes undone.

The reflective aspect of the glass alongside the pristine geometrical configuration of the shattered jewelery creates an image that is evocative of both fragility and vigor. The result is a stunning series that captures viewer's attention and leaves them appreciating the beauty in fragmentation. Stats for Shattered Glass Photography Trending: Older & Warm
