A New Way Of Looking At Things

Todd Mclellan, Things Come Apart, photograph, components
Photographer Todd Mclellan’s new book, Things Come Apart, deconstructs manufactured objects he has collected over the years, lays out all the components, and photographs them. The results are amazing and reminded me of when I used to take apart old radios when I was a kid. Todd’s photographs give a rare dignity to mundane objects of the past.

The book prompted me to look at the things we do at Wesco Fabrics in a new way as a visual construct. Our business, whether providing cut yardage or custom window coverings to interior designers, begins with the FABRIC!
