Francois Robert was a photographer going through a dry season. After the recession gave him lots of spare time, he turned to a skeleton he acquired when he bought three school lockers at an auction. The wired skeleton had been used for a science class before Robert put it to more artistic use.
Trading it in for a box filled with 206 real human bones, Robert got to work on his latest project that was born out of his own fear of death and destruction. The finished works, showing objects stripped down to their bones, creates a powerful statement about the fragility of life and what remains after violence.
Explaining the project, which is entitled Stop the Violence, Robert stated: "The bones are something left behind, a form of memory, I try to treat that person on my studio floor with respect."
