Photographer Todd McLellan’s Deconstructed Objects

In today’s fast-moving consumption-driven culture, it’s become commonplace to replace our old stuff within a year or two, if not sooner. This principle applies to all objects we buy, but is particularly true for tech products.

Toronto-based artist and photographer Todd McLellan explores this theme with his series of obsessive photographs of dismantled objects. These beautifully arranged still life images range from organized to chaotic, and from high-tech (a Blackberry, a MacBook) to low tech (a wagon, a bicycle) – and are broken apart into 21,959 individual components.

His book, “Things Come Apart” features 50 objects that have been arranged into compositions showing how gadgets work.
