It took Swiss photographer Fabian Oefner two years to complete. During that time, Oefner and his team travelled to the workshops surrounding the Lamborghini Factory in Sant’Agata, Italy to capture each piece of a Lamborghini Miura SV from 1972 as it was being restored. The final image, consisting of more than 1’500 individual photographs, shows the iconic Italian sports car frozen in mid-explosion. There are no fireballs gushing forth, just every large and small component of the car in varying stages of departure.
“It had always been my dream to create an art piece with a real car. One day, a friend said to me ‘I have a Miura, and I’m having it restored. Why don’t you take the opportunity to create one of your Disintegrating images?’ And of course he didn’t have to ask me twice to work on one of my favourite cars, to get to touch every single screw and piece of that legend, and put them into a final composition,” Oefner told the Lamborghini magazine.
Titled Disintegrating X, The image is available at the MB&F M.A.D.Gallery, in two sizes: 140x70cm limited to 18 prints and 230x115cm limited to 8 prints. Both have two artist editions each.
