For her latest series named "Big Bang" Houston-based photographer Deborah Bay examines explores The united states' long-held passion for weapons as part of its culture. Many of images look like exploding galaxies, however a closer look shows the dangerous nature of weapons.
Speaking about the project Deborah says :
"I began thinking about “The Big Bang” after seeing a sales display of bullet-proof plexiglas with projectiles embedded in it. The plexiglas captured the fragmentation of the bullets and provided a visual record of the energy released on impact. In deciding to explore this concept further, I also was intrigued by the psychological tension created between the jewel-like beauty and the inherent destructiveness of the fragmented projectiles."
