  • Canadian photographer Todd McLellan's latest series "Disassembly" captures relics of our past in a unique, dismantled and exposed form. Disassembled items include a typewriter, a push lawn mower and a rotary phon; each have had every part meticulously re-arranged - by type, size and function - on a beige surface in an almost OCD-like manner, resulting in a portrait of an era now left behind.

    • I adore your disassembly project. As someone who as a child at age 12 sabotaged a typewriter so I could take it apart, then a car radio, then a CD player... I love this. Thanks!!

    • To the first commenter: not really. I'm pretty sure she remembered the 2006 photograph of an arrangement of a disassembled VW golf, http://www.flickr.com/photos/avi_abrams/2066997439 - and even that is not the first instance of this kind of thing.

    • Brilliant. A clean, non-gratuitous disassembly of a human being would be an interesting contrast.
