What tends to draw artists to the never-ending search of capturing the perfect photograph lies in the allure of suspending space/time; holding that moment long after it has past. In doing so, they effectively split the relationship between time and reality. No longer is time a fluid, forward moving phenomenon. A moment captured lasts forever.

At least this is the motivation behind Swiss artist Fabian Oefner, who has returned with a series of exploding cars, each of which he meticulously created by deconstructed scale models and photographing the components with strict precision. Yes, you read that correctly. Every individual piece of these photos is its own unique shot. According to Oefner himself, each image blends over 2,000 different images together thus artificially building a moment that in actuality never really existed. It’s obsessive compulsive chaos at its finest, taking over two months to create an image that looks like it was taken in a fraction of a second. Quite beautiful wouldn’t you say?
