  • Beautiful. This sketchbook is a piece of art.

  • lapetitefaon

    Holy jesus, that sketchbook looks epic. Ahhhhh the eyes and the color I want to frame that and have it on my wall so badly. But somehow it seems like something is lost when its not in the context of the sketchbook any longer.

    • yea i would love to hold this thing in my hands and look at it in person

  • I love looking through this stuff. I have kept all my fathers sketch books from when he was a child, along with mine and hope to pass them down to my kids one day.

  • KC Collins

    This is testament to the “stick to your guns” mentality.
    ‘Lapetitefaon” the framed work looks just as good

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! See more images from “Bomba” below, available now through Dashwood Books.
