Wonderful prints by Daniel Danger. For the most part they are wonderful but I have to be honest, this one creeps me out! My worst fear might be deep open water. In elementary school I remember someone having a Magic card with an illustration of a man in a rowboat in a small lake with a giant fish (literally the size of the entire lake) looking up from the bottom. Terrifying!
Men in the Mexican town of San Juan de la Vega wield sledgehammers loaded with homemade explosives, in this series of intense photographs by American photographer Thomas Prior.
Part of an annual festival honouring St. John the Baptist, residents take part in the exploding sledgehammer ritual, dodging deadly shrapnel to commemorate a time when the town’s namesake was able to triumph over some gold-stealing bandits!
