Toronto-based photographer Todd McLellan loves to take apart machines — especially more solidly built older ones — and capture all the related parts in striking photographic compositions. I really like these — they appeal to both an aesthetic and design sensibility as well as my penchant for building things. See more of his photos and other work on his website here.
These are so beautiful. Thank you for sharing them with us.
Agreed and I’m grateful for artists like McLellan who devote their time to creative pursuits that enrich us all.
I wouldn’t have imagined such a thing could be art, but it really is. I was sold when it came to the chainsaw.
This is wonderful! thank you for sharing it
This is fantastic! My husband loves to take things apart, he would love this.
Cool and I get that! You should share this artist’s work with him.
I will totally show him this, yes, and then he’ll probably want to DO this haha…
I am so with you on this artist. There are other images on a post I did on Canadian Art Junkie earlier this year. Really enjoy your blog! http://bit.ly/KvxnUb
Thanks for providing the link to your post as well, which I just visited. As usual, you’re ahead of the curve when it comes to Canadian art matters –that’s a compiment! I see you have some of McLellan’s equally interesting “in motion” images posted.
Now I want to pull something apart!
I feel the same way. In today’s NY Times Magazine an article on inventions showed a Todd McLellan photo of a disassembled ATM (http://www.nytimes.com/packages/html/magazine/2013/innovations-issue/?ref=magazine#/?part=atm), so McLellan’s work is receiving good notice.
I feel the same way.
