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.
