"Bullet Series"

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.
