In his new book Things Come Apart, Toronto-based artist and photographer Todd McLellan has created a series of beautiful maker-moment photographs from the deconstruction and disassembly of both old and new technology. McLellan, and crew, carefully reduce each chosen object to a beautifully designed arrangement of individual parts.
In the tome, published by Thames & Hudson, he meticulously dissects 50 items including an iPad, an accordion, a fire extinguisher, a piano and more. While McLellan calls it “an exercise in discovery,” many will admire his obsessive attention to both detail and design.
