These photos of car crashes by Nicolai Howalt are really fascinating to me because of the abstract nature they’re taken on. If you hadn’t read the title or the previous sentence would you know it was a car crash? It’s crazy because the metal starts to resemble a cracked Easter egg. There’s also a sculptural quality to the these “happy accidents”, and it’s interesting that he’s able to capture the beauty in such random acts of chaos. You can see more images from his series by clicking here.

    Made me think of the cover for Mezzanine by Nick Knight and also, to some extent, the late Jouko Lehtolas Finnish View series with it’s crashed cars. http://www.joukolehtola.com/
