One of the great strengths of photography resides in its ability to inventory and capture the world around us. Raphaël Dallaporta presents a captivating example of this with his project on antipersonnel mines.

“These strange ugly objects also have a certain disturbing beauty to them. […] We now learn that hundreds of types of landmines exist and the variety of design, appearance, shape and design is incredible. […] Because Dallaporta has photographed these objects in the way an advertising photographer might render a shampoo bottle, he glorifies these objects and yet appears totally neutral in his approach. It is a most clever trick, so much so that we hardly notice he has done it.” (Martin Parr).
