  • Pearlman says these full, unflinching photos show the tender yet explosive and violent insides of these objects. She suggests with these portraits that as humans, we live our interior lives encased in protective armor, and that we too hold both the possibility of killer and protector. - Ammunition cross-section from the series "<a href="http://www.pearlmanphotography.com" target="_blank">AMMO</a>," 2012. Limited edition, archival pigment prints on metallic paper.

  • Pearlman says that much like Snow White's apple in the Brothers Grimm fairy tale, "AMMO" represents themes of intrigue and tragedy, good and evil, beauty and horror. It allows us to reflect on our inner-most fears as well as our highest hopes. - Ammunition cross-section from the series "<a href="http://www.pearlmanphotography.com" target="_blank">AMMO</a>," 2012. Limited edition, archival pigment prints on metallic paper.

  • Pearlman says that by eschewing the practice of giving each image a label describing the type, age or use of each cartridge, she preserves the cartridges' ambiguity and offers the viewer the pure form to ponder and appreciate. - Ammunition cross-section from the series "<a href="http://www.pearlmanphotography.com" target="_blank">AMMO</a>," 2012. Limited edition, archival pigment prints on metallic paper.
