“Stop the Violence” Photo Series by Francois Robert
Swiss photographer Francois Robert used human bones to create impressive images with the purpose of increasing global awareness of war violence.
“In the mid 90′s, Robert purchased three lockers from a school for $50 to furnish his studio. To his surprise, one of the lockers contained a human skeleton, which had been mounted for teaching purposes.
Since he always had a fascination with bones, once spending five weeks photographing skulls in the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago, he decided to take some of his free time caused by the recession of 2007 and trade in his skeleton for a collection of 206 loose bones.”Art Photography Posted on August 15, 2012
