Mind-Blowing Photos of Exploding Food

At the height of our holiday elation/frustration, we found our mixed feelings perfectly expressed in Alan Sailer’s incredible photos of exploding Christmas ornaments. Now, Designboom points us to yet another series of the photographer’s gorgeous detonations. Using a pellet gun and homemade camera equipment, Sailer documents all sorts of food being blown to pieces. See a chocolate bunny’s head cave in, Smarties burst into a beautiful, powdery pastel rainbow, and a lychee nut transform into a watery bomb after the jump; then visit Sailer’s Flickr site to check out a whole lot more of his work.
