As a little kid, have you ever disassembled and took your toys apart just to see what they are made of? Toronto-based artist and photographer Todd McLellan does, even if he’s not a little kid anymore. It became his inspiration for his book Things Come Apart published by Thames & Hudson, a book full of meticulously organized photographs of vintage and modern technology broken down and laid bare.

McLellan’s book features 50 photos ranging from cellular phones to bicycles that are broken apart into 21,959 individual components altogether, all of which are arranged very neatly. His photos show the different parts of an item, from the smallest to the biggest.

He also shoots of high speed photos where pieces are shot in midair as they come crashing down, creating impressive visual explosions and capturing every piece of a gadget in a hypnotic free fall.
