I took the pictures at the Arms fair in Seoul in October 2017. They are part of my project “Nothing personal”. Nothing Personal is an ongoing project about war business. The opposite of a battlefield, the war business is a huge playground for adults with wine, finger food and shiny weapons. Dead bodies here are mannequins or pixels on screens of a huge number of simulators. Real bazookas and machine guns are plugged into flatscreens. Arms fairs are usually closed for public events with some exceptions. The pictures have been taken in Kielce, Poland, 2016, Minsk, Belarus and Seoul, South Korea in 2017.
