Grotesque Photographs of Exploding Toys and Figurines

Alan-Sailer photography

I know what you’re thinking: you’ve seen this kind of thing before. Perhaps you’re even sick of seeing photographs of exploding objects and food. However, we believe self-described ‘obscure photographer’ Alan Sailer is onto something.

An engineer by trade, Sailer finds toys at garage sales, fills them with colored gelatin, then blows them up with firecrackers in his garage. He’s clearly having fun with these experiments, and the results are freaky and grotesque, yet oddly appealing. For everyone who has wanted to blow up an annoying Mr. Potato Head and photograph the carnage, too late. It’s been done.
