“AMMO” is a photo series of some 900 pieces of ammunition that have been neatly cut in half to reveal their surprisingly varied and intricate contents. Photographer Sabine Pearlman shot the series last year in a WWII-era bunker in Switzerland.
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.
