The Artist Shot Dead by the Movie Stars, Even

NYC artist Jon Burgerman has created a series of photographs in which he is “shot” by movie posters. A comment on gun violence in America and the violent imagery promoted by the movie industry, Burgerman’s series “Head Shots” nonetheless has a comical tinge to it — there’s no CGI realism here, but rather the ketchupy fake blood of old B movies, with Burgerman always in a yellow puffer jacket, presumably for contrast. Don’t miss the ones of him being shot by arrows from posters for Catching Fire and The Hobbit. [via the Guardian]
