Have you always wondered what bullets look like on the inside? Sabine Pearlman, an Austrian photographer currently based in Los Angeles, California, has just the photo series for you, titled “Ammo”. Pearlman was educated at the Pratt institute, the Otis College of Art and Design and Santa Monica College.
This is what Pearlman has to say, “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.”
