Rapheal Dallaporta is a renowned documentary photography for his minimal aesthetics and stringent guidelines which direct his projects. In "Antipersonnel" Dallaporta depicts, against stark black backgrounds, landmines used in war settings. These objects are meant to keep all people away, regardless of their innocence or relation to the war. The photographer completely isolates the landmines, we see them as strange objects of functional aesthetics.
