Things Come Apart by Todd McLellan

Canadian photographer Todd McLellan explores the art of everyday objects with his new photo book Things Come Apart. The images depict the disassembled remnants of 50 different items, ranging from a simple Swiss Army Knife to a dissected Blackberry. They offer a fascinating glimpse into the inner workings of the things we take for granted, while also documenting the evolution of the manufacturing process over the past 100 years. Case in point: an early-century clock has a surprisingly tidy number of mechanical components, while the guts of a common radio clock is made up of hundreds of complex parts. Check out more from Things Come Apart below, and order the book now from publisher Thames & Hudson.
