High Speed Explosions by Alan Sailer
Blowing things up is a blast, literally, and photographer Alan Sailer feels the same way. The artist is known for taking captivating photos of objects right as they explode, and he’s at it again with a brand new series.
Essentially Mr. Sailer shoots objects with a pellet gun, and catches them with a high speed camera just as they begin to explode. He uses creative terms for his individual photos like Mr. Potato Dead for Mr. Potato Head, Troll Face Life for the Troll, Bullish for the can of Red Bull, and many more. The timing on these shots is nothing short of impressive. Check out some of our favorite photos from the series seen below.
