This Is What an Exploding Ferrari Looks Like

Swiss artist Fabian Oefner’s ‘Disintegrating’ series of fine art images are painstakingly crafted from thousands of individual photographs—stitched together in a process that takes months—to give the illusion of classic cars exploding before your very eyes. In the studio, each intricately detailed scale model has been dismantled then photographed piece by piece to create the final image. Photographs by Fabian Oefner
