Alan Sailer is an artist that specializes in high-speed photography. He has a penchant for shooting and blowing up things up like fruit, household items or stuff he finds at flea markets, thrift store and yard sales. The results are posted to his wildly active and entertaining Flickr page where he discusses his process and responds to questions and comments.

Alan works out of his garage using a homemade high-speed flash device that’s based off an article from a 1974 volume of the Scientific American. The results speak for themselves and I highly recommend you check out his extensive 1,500+ gallery on Flickr.
