If you’ve ever been in a bad car crash, or know someone who has, it could be good to look away now. I wouldn’t call these shots of the insides of crashed cars gratuitous, nor would I say they were tasteless. There’s something quite David Lynch about them, perhaps because of the awnings covering the windscreens, perhaps because of the strange detritus littered around the humanless vehicles (that’s why you should clean your car).

These photographs by documentary artist and photographer Nicolai Howalt are probably one of the most interesting photographic series we’ve seen all year.
