Todd McLellan Disassembles A Pentax SLR
By James Grahame
When I was a kid, I loved taking apart electromechanical gadgets to discover their secrets. This was in the dark age before the Internet, when knowledge oozed and dripped like tree sap, rather than flashing around the world at the speed of light.
Todd McLellan takes teardowns to another level by ripping old devices apart and photographing them for his Disassembly series. Now Mr McLellan has splattered his K1000 Pentax Spotmatic F all over a backdrop, just so we can marvel at the sheer effort required to design and assemble one of these apparently simple devices.
