The Photographer Who Shoots His Own Subjects

The Bacon Rasher: My favourite picture from Sailer's distinctive port folio.

Alan Sailer creates dramatic images by blasting food and ornaments with an air rifle and capturing the impact. 

His make-do fast action studio has been built in his own garage 
-the flash is triggered when the pellet from the air rifle passes 
through a laser beam, meaning the perfect moment is always captured.
