Half a Shot – Photos by Sabine Pearlman
“Ammo” is Sabine Pearlman’s incredible series featuring all kinds of ammunition cut precisely down the middle. The series gives us a never-before-seen glimpse of the insides of bullets. She shot a total of 900 cross-sections of ammo in a secluded World War II bunker in Switzerland. The bullets were cut in half by a munitions specialist who devised a technique to defuse the rounds before cutting them in half. The symmetry found within these deadly pieces is oddly beautiful. Sabine said: “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.”
