Exploding Teddy Bears

Exploding Teddy by Dan Tobin Smith for Kilimanjaro Magazine

The latest issue of Kilimanjaro Magazine features a wickedly cool photostory by Dan Tobin Smith entitled, Exploding Teddy. Predictably, the photos portray teddy bears being blown to smithereens. As founder of Kilimanjaro Magazine, Olu Odukoya, told the guys at CR blog, “Seeing things exploding isn’t partic­ularly rare, but seeing a teddy bear exploding evokes an emotional response.” Damn straight – I can hear the cries of children everywhere!

Apparently, in order to create the images, Odukoya and Tobin went to a specialist studio to enlist the help of professional pyrotechnics experts who filmed explosions at a super fast frame rate in order to establish the perfect timing for Tobin Smith to take his shots. Check out some nicely edited video footage of the Exploding Teddy photo shoot here.
