TEN TO MIDNIGHT - GERMANY 1944

TEN TO MIDNIGHT - GERMANY 1944

from 17.00

Mixed media OilGraph on panel with gunpowder and blood // 24x24
From the new gunpowder series WARCRY

Photographed on Tri-X with a Mamiya RB67

My friend's father collected bullets like postage stamps. When he passed they were all up for grabs. This one jumped out at me. 

Was this intended for a US soldier? Or was it one of the last bullets of a soldier towards the end of the war saved as a witness to all he experienced? 

I wasn't going to include the shadow, but to me it looked like a clock dial. It was a particular challenge because photographing a single bullet leaves very little to hide behind. 

This entire series is a departure for me. Because of the elements I have very little control on the direction a piece takes. The gunpowder does what the gunpowder does and every time I use it I risk destroying the piece altogether. Which is kinda awesome.
