Harm Less: A Photo Series of Firearms Made Entirely out of Plants

Here’s a great photo series by artist Sonia Rentsch that quite literally takes the “fire” out of firearms. Dubbed “Harm Less,” the series consists entirely of weaponry made out of only organic materials.

The series of sculputres was created by Rentsch for January Biannual, a periodical dedicated to “beauty, intelligence and timelessness.” Once she had constructed the handguns, hand-grenade and bullets, she enlisted the help of photographer Albert Comper to actually take the photos themselves.

It’s a short series, but one that makes a subtle (yet powerful) statement about violence, weapons and gun culture. Rentsch’s “Harm Less” sculptures have stirred up conversations about everything from the violence within nature, to how nature’s beauty overcomes such things:
