Delightful photos of golf balls cut in half: James Friedman explores the hidden beauty of “Interior Design”

Photographer James Friedman is not a golfer, but he knows a lot about golf balls simply from slicing them in half and photographing their inner beauty. Titled "Interior Design," Friedman's delightful photo series shows how each sliced golf ball's core has a distinctive, colorful texture hidden inside. Some balls resemble strange meteorites while others look like childhood candy. (Who else out there remembers Everlasting Gobstoppers?)
The Ohio-based Friedman declined to be interviewed for this story, but he has posted the following statement about "Interior Design" on his website:
"Curiosity led me to cut my collection of golf balls in half to see what the cores looked like. 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."
"Interior Design" is not the first photo series we've featured showcasing objects cut in half. In June, we shared Sabine Pearlman's powerful images of bullets cut in half; while, in May, we showcased Beth Galton's delectable photos of food cut in half.
