1 Golf balls by James Friedman

Though not a golfer himself, photographer James Friedman had a collection of golf balls. He grew curious about what insides would look like, so he decided to cut them in half. In doing so, he revealed that the cores can be quite beautiful and made for a very interesting photo series which he called Interior Design. He used 20 different types of golf balls and all of them were vastly different. I always just assumed the inside was white like the outside, but Friedman shows that some interiors are brightly colored, some have rings of different materials, and some look otherworldly. You can’t judge a golf ball by it’s cover!

Friedman explains:

To my surprise, what I found inside inspired me to consider that I could discover, in the unlikeliest of places, elegant formal qualities and surprising metaphorical possibilities. Interior Design has moved me to be enthusiastic about abstraction, an exciting corollary to my work as a documentary photographer.
