Detailed Cross-Sections of Ammunition

 

Sabine Pearlman is an Austrian photographer currently based in Los Angeles, California. Educated at the Pratt institute, the Otis College of Art and Design and Santa Monica College, Pearlman’s series entitled, Ammo, has been sweeping across the Internet. On her website, Pearlman states:

“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.”

 

In an interview with Imaging Resource, Pearlman says the ammunition was cut by a munitions specialist, who created a technique to defuse the rounds and cut them in half.

At the bottom of the post, you will also see a chart that attempts to identify the ammunition. It was put together by D_P_T on Reddit and was based on information culled from this thread on Reddit.

To see more from Pearlman, be sure to check out her portfolio on her website. You can also stay up to date with the latest on Facebook. Prints will be coming soon and the Sifter will update the post when they become available.
