The Bullet Peace is a tribute to my beloved friend Leila Alaoui as a symbol of hope in these turbulent times. Through her remarkable and captivating photographic work, Leila showed to the world her true humanist values. Considering her vision, it was important for me to create a piece which could help to evoke change and unification across cultures and around the globe.
As an anti-terrorism symbol, I have damaged the bullet, the word Peace is engraved at the point in the eight most commonly spoken languages. Leila's initials and the date that has shaken our lives 15.1 are inscribed at the base.
As my first charity piece, I will be supporting Leila's foundation and also be looking to donate to a few of my selected charities that support children in conflict zones.
