"Bullet Series"
a series of 12 x 20" b/w photographs
This work is a series of black and white photographs of bullets manufactured in different countries around the world. With each photograph titled and labeled accordingly, the images are meant to evoke a sense of national identity, serving as representatives, or delegates, of each place. Nations included so far are Spain, Russia, U.S., Hungary, Germany, Japan and China. On a more aesthetic level, each bullet is presented as a fetish, creating a seductive tension between form and content, desire and fear, beauty and violence.

a series of 20 x 20" b/w photographs
"STILL-LIFE" is a series of photographs of bullets after they've been fired and hit their targets. With this series I am simply interested in capturing the poetry that is embedded in the floral patterns that emerge.
