Fabian Oefner's "Disintegrating" and "Hatch"

January 14, 2014

Swiss photographer Fabian Oefner has previously appeared on the site for his beautiful high-speed photographs of spinning paint as well as his magnetic watercolor photos. Today we take a look at a series of six photographs that, like before combine art and science. His Disintegrating series dismantles and "explodes" classic sports cars, freezing their parts in space. The Hatch series sees the cars "breaking" from inside a shell.

'What you see in these images, is a moment that never existed in real life,'' says Oefner. ''There is a unique pleasure about artificially building a moment… Freezing a moment in time is stupefying.''
