    Cool! I’ve seen them live at Art Forum exhibition 2010 in Berlin! Great fun!

    It’s kind of interesting how at first they seem to be about not having utility, only to see people use them in new, creative ways. 

  • lepetitfaon

    interesting on their own but love to see people actually interacting with the pieces! Love that they seem at once impractical yet in reality are still totally functional.

Photographer Thomas Prior Captures Mexican Festival of Sledgehammers and Homemade Explosives

thomas-prior36

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.
