Well - this time it is probably more the object rather than the photograph standing in the foreground ...
I had the honour to document an art project of a young lady. This image is one of a series of photographs, but probably the most catchy one ... so I'd like to share it with you.
Aurelia, the young artist, created this bread pistol as a part of a "BEGINNER's SET FOR STARTING A POLITICAL PERFORMACE". The set comprises some information about the gross waste of food in the so-called civilized world, a nice box decorated with photos of surplus food thrown into huge trash containers and the bread pistol plus ammunition (made of bread, too). If one reads the stunning figures of tons and tons of good food being thrown away every day in only one small western country (Germany in our case), he or she will build up the energy and angriness to finally step out into the public hold up this weapon made of bread and shout "HANDS UP - THIS IS AN OVERABUNDANCE!" (the original German words come out pretty funny as the word for overabundance (Überfluss) and assault (Überfall) are quite similar).
Anyway - I found the idea and execution of this artwork very cool and also do absolutely support the message...
This time, however, I'd like to just share the photograph with you and hope you'll enjoy it ...
Have fun :)
Cheers
Juergen
