Disassembled Retro Items Photography by Todd McLellan

Inspiration, Web Design | Apr 8, 2011

Todd McLellan is a Canadian photographer, originally from Saskatchewan (Canada).

His interest in the creative field all started from a kindergarten finger painting class, with his father encouraging him into the field of photography at an early age.

In one of Todd’s newest projects, he disassembles various items such as a Pentax Camera and a Suffolk Lawnmower (among plenty of other things), rearranges the pieces into a neat presentation and then photographs them.

The high amount of detail and thought put into the work makes the project very inspiring and a joy to look at. You’ll probably find yourself looking at each piece and figuring out where it came from or how it makes the disassembled item work.

You can see more of Todd’s work in his portfolio, or at Sugino Studio, a Canadian based studio which represents Todd.

Did you find yourself wondering how the mechanics of each product work? Which was your favorite piece?

    Cool idea!
    And my respect for the patience :)

    It reminds me of the 1st Tomb Raider movie. Where she threw a timework in some kind of time storm.

    Very cool! Todd McLellan is very talented photographer. I’m not sure he could do this with newer objects. Everything is on a chip now…very few parts.

    how’d he do those action shots?

      mm if you see there is no shadow between the parts, so I guess he use separate shots for every piece..
