Fabian Oefner, an artist from Switzerland, created a series of photos that look like they are exploding. His portraits are black and white which further emphasizes the dramatic effect of the “explosion”.

He has created the damage on each photo from the pieces of that same photo, carefully cutting and rearranging them into thought-provoking collages.

“The artist creates these works by capturing thousands of fragments of the original print and diligently arranging them into a new piece,” states the artist’s website. “Oefner’s meticulous precision ultimately results into a hyperrealistic illusion, that shows a real, yet non-existing moment in time.”
