WWII AMMO SHOT BY SABINE PEARLMAN


War is hell, but ammo from WWII is pretty fucking cool. Sabine Pearlman shot the things that usually shoot to kill.

This series of ammunition cross-sections was photographed inside a WWII bunker in Switzerland in October of 2012. The entire series consists of 900 specimens. 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 is a representation of the evil and the beautiful, a reflection of the human condition.
