Adam Voorhes Exploded Photography
It takes a certain skill and attention to detail to produce work that Adam Voorhes has produced. Even though he is usually very busy with client work, he eventually finds time and involves him self in exciting projects such as this one, which is called Exlopded.
When asked how he managed to accomplished such works, Yes, I broke open two Etch-A-Sketchs. My producer dissected a bunch of bull frogs, and we dismembered the phone, the gun was the easy one. Etch-A-Sketches are a lot messier than you’d think, and hard to open. A lot worse than a frog. We pried the first one open with a screw driver and aluminum powder and little plastic beads went flying everywhere. We had to get a second and drill a hole in it to get more powder for the shot. I never realized how they worked – little wires on pulleys connect to a point that scrapes the aluminum powder off of the screen. Or something like that. However it works it’s clever and close to magic.As the photography part goes, I try to be patient and make as much happen in front of the camera as I can – we float things on plates of glass, acrylic blocks, and hang things from wire. That way I don’t have to sit in front of my computer for two long, but it goes both ways. Seems like a very involved process if you ask me, but the end result is well worth it. Good job Adam!
