Things Come Apart


Canadian photographer Todd McLellan published a projected entitled “Things Come Apart” as an expansion of the original “Disassembly Series.”

In a recent NPR report, some points of his technique is revealed:

“To photograph the objects, he first tried conventional portraits but found the results “boring and stuffy.” Eventually he decided to take the objects completely apart and lay out all of the pieces on a white backdrop.”

“He found the layout process interesting but tedious; then he thought it would be neat to just throw everything in the air. (He does most of the static layups himself but uses assistants to drop the items.)”

“I think I’ve gained an appreciation for newer technology and for design overall,” he said, speaking of the iPad and smart devices. “How they fit so much into such a small space is amazing.”

The photography series pictures everyday items as they are disassembled and taken apart. Some of these motions and stills are quite fascintating!

Todd reports on his website: “This new set of images explores retro to modern daily items that have, are, or will be in our everyday lives. The book “Things Come Apart” published by Thames & Hudson will be available May. ”
