Surprising Photos Reveal the Candy-Colored Insides of Golf Balls

“What I found inside inspired me to consider that I could discover, in the unlikeliest of places, elegant formal qualities and surprising metaphorical possibilities. Interior Design has moved me to be enthusiastic about abstraction, an exciting corollary to my work as a documentary photographer” — James Friedman

Ironically, Ohio-based photographer James Friedman does not play golf. However, curiosity led him to cut up golf balls in half to see what the core looks like. To his great surprise, he discovered what lay beneath the glossy white surfaces were beautiful and intricate shapes and colors.

    Interesting photos, Do you have the brand names for the balls? could you list them.

    It would be very interesting if each golf was identified as to manufacturer and model.

    Unfortunately we do not have make and model of the golf balls. I asked before we put this live, but I don’t think the photographer has them anymore.
