Disintegrating is about inventing time. What you are looking at is a moment, that never existed in real life. What looks like a car falling apart is in fact a moment in time, that has been created artificially by blending hundreds of individual images together. For these images, the cars have been taken apart and then, piece by piece was photographed in a specific position to create the illusion of an exploding car.
Photography usually captures moments in time. In this case, it created an entirely new one. The images could be called the slowest high speed images ever captured. It took almost three weeks to create an image, that looks as if it was captured in a fraction of a second. All three images had to first be sketched on paper in order to determine, where the individual parts go. Then the cars had to be taken apart. These are highly detailed model cars with over 1`000 parts, so dismantling them took quite a bit of time. After that, one piece after another was placed in the right position with the aid of needles and strings according to the sketch and then photographed. As the last steps, the individual layers were blended together in post-production to create one single image.
