Fabian Oefner's Exploding Cars

You have to see these images. 

The Disintegrating series – representing a staggering amount of work- has been created from hundreds not to say thousands of shots. Each car has been dismantled completely, from the body shell to the smallest screws, then photographed piece by piece in a specific position to obtain the illusion of an exploding car.

I remember piecing together composite digital images from separate shots of models in the early 90's, when digital cameras were low-resolution, and our Macs were incredibly slow compared to today, but we never attempted anything as intricate or as beautiful as this.
