Beautiful *single tear rolls down cheek* * tongue licks it at corner of mouth*:
This series of ammunition cross-sections was photographed inside a WWII bunker in Switzerland in October of 2012. The entire series consists of 900 specimen. I was originally intrigued by the ambiguous nature of the subject matter. The cross-sections reveal a hidden complexity and beauty of form, which stands in vast contrast to the destructive purpose of the object. It’s a representation of the evil and the beautiful, a reflection of the human condition.
Well there you have it… the standard artsy purpose statement. haha “reflection of the human condition”.

I’m pretty sure most of those are magical experimental rounds that most of us could never get our hands on. Really neat to see… I wish she sold huge prints. I want to see all 900 photographs!
