Bombs by Petros Efstathiadis Symbolizes and Satirizes Greek Protests

Bombs by Petros Efstathiadis, a Greek photographer, is a photo series that appears to document homemade weaponry. Although this may probably be an illegal act, the 'bombs' are not real, so there is nothing to worry about. But that doesn't mean they don't carry a serious message. The series was by common Greek protests and the violence that ensues, which is then turned into daily spectacles by the media.

The reason the creations in Bombs by Petros Efstathiadis are made to look like weapons is to convey "a world paranoid with fear and hate," as stated by the photographer. Since they are fashioned out of everyday objects like brooms and hairspray, recasting consumer trash as violent objects, the 'bombs' also represent the helplessness many Greek feel concerning their economy.
