Photographer Slices Open Golf Balls to Reveal Surprising Abstract Designs Within


Photographer James Friedman had a bunch of unused golf balls laying around when he began to wonder what they looked like on the inside. After slicing one open and discovering a beautiful interior, he was even more intrigued to slice open another one. The end result is a series of photographs entitled Interior Design that reveals the hidden world inside golf balls. What’s surprising is how different they all are.

Friedman says, “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.”
