This series of ammunition cross-sections was photographed inside a WWII bunker in Switzerland in October of 2012. The entire series consists of 900 specimens. Sabine Pearlman was originally intrigued by the ambiguous nature of the subject matter. The cross-sections reveal a hidden complicity and beauty of form, which stands in vast contrast to the destructive purpose of the object. It's a representation of the evil and beautiful, a reflection of the human condition.
Born and raised in Austria, Sabine Pearlman moved to the US in 2004. She lives and works in Los Angeles. Educated at Pratt Institute, Otis College of Art and Design and Santa Monica College, Sabine Pearlman's work has been exhibited all over.
