On my desktop this week… ‘Disassembly’ by Todd McLellan

In his ‘Disassembly’ series, Todd McLellan takes apart everyday technology, lays the bits out, then chucks them up in the air. He takes photos at each stage and each photo is very simple yet captivating.

This shot of the typewriter caught my eye. Typewriters look complex from the outside for a piece of technology with one straight function, and just look at the parts and the engineering involved!

This work made me think of my Grandfather. He loves to take technology apart and see what makes it work. PCs are his favourite disassemble.

  1. Really nice idea to take machines apart and photograph them, these photos on Todd’s website really let you see how complicated the machines are, with the many different parts needed to make them work. And he has some great photos of places, landscape photos that are really creative.
