In this book of postcards, Peter Piller presents a collection of photographs found on eBay using the search terms Deko + Munition (ammunition + decor). Each photograph has been taken by an eBay seller auctioning off ammunition cartridges. In keeping with their stated purpose as home decorations, each cartridge is lovingly portrayed in the sellers' living rooms.
Over the last few years, Piller has been collecting these images for his archive and is now making them accessible for the first time in this selection of postcards.
Peter Piller (born 1968, Fritzlar, Germany) studied German language and literature and trained as a visual artist. His approach to photography, based largely on an enourmous amount of collected and archived photographs, is striking and unique.
