Swiss artist Fabian Oefner is the man behind “Disintegrating”, a series of images of exploding cars. It takes the artist a tremendous amount of work to compose each piece (pun intended). All the car models have been dismantled entirely in order to take thousand of shots of every single piece, such as screws and motor parts, that are shot in a specific position giving the illusion of an exploding car. It’s a process that requires months to make, with none less than 2000 photographs needed to make a single fine art compositions. The cars featured are all beautiful classic sport cars with a Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR Uhlenhaut Coupé with gullwing doors (1954), a Ferrari 330 P4 (1967), a Jaguar E-Type (1961), an Audi Auto Union Type C (1936-1937), a Maserati 250F (1957), a Ford GT40 (1969), a Bugatti 57 SC (1934-1940) and a Porsche 956 (1982). Fabian Oefner knows how to choose his cars and we’re relieved that no cars appear to have been hurt in the making of these works.
