Inspiration: Francois Robert’s Stop the Violence

I thought this month would be the perfect time for featuring one one of my favorite series of the year. As soon as I saw photographer Francois Robert’s Stop The Violence series I was instantly in love. For this series, Robert created dozens of symbols related to weapons of war and religion.. out of real human bones. I’ve always been drawn to bones – their artful curves and pristine ebony color.. and of course the stories they tell and the meanings they hold. Stop the Violence certainly makes use of all the many beautiful aspects of bones while telling a powerful story of humanity.

To see the full collection and more of Robert’s stunning photographic work, visit his website.

    It took me a minute to realize the top piece isn’t just an abstract – it’s a grenade! These must be very large pieces. I’d love to see them on display.
