These images are from German photographer Frank Rothes series titled ‘German Guns’. They are really striking portraits, i really like the lighting and depth of field that Rothe uses in his portrait work. I also like the way that the main subject matter (i.e. the guns) play a relatively small role in the main image, being out of focus as in the example above, or very small within the frame like below. Overall I think these images work well with what can sometimes be a cliched subject.
