Shoot Portraits, Not People: Jason Siegel's photographic 'weapons'

Photo by Jason Siegel

Glance at a piece from Jason Siegel's 'Shoot Portraits, Not People' art installation and you might think you're looking at a high-powered weapon. But if you look closer, you'll quickly see that guns and grenades are all made up of photographic equipment.

Siegel is a Denver-based lifestyle photographer, with a professional portfolio that includes work for clients in the clothing and music industries. Stepping outside of the printed image for this project, he gathered over 200 pounds of cameras, lenses, flashes and other pieces of equipment for this project. He worked with metal sculptor Keith D'Angelo to build the weapons and military paraphernalia, a process you can get a glimpse of in the behind-the-scenes video below.

'Shoot Portraits, Not People' opens today at BLK MKT gallery in Aspen, and will run through the month of January. See more of Siegel's work by heading to his website or following him on Instagram and Facebook.
