The Harm Less photo series sends a powerful message to the world. It is a unique collection of firearms that have not been fashioned out of metal, but organic materials such as twigs, flowers and leaves. The title of the Harm Less series represents two ideas. The first addresses the fact that these weapons are 'harmless' while the second encourages people to do less harm. In the wake of gun legislation in the United States, this series is eye-opening.

Created by Australian artist Sonia Rentsch, the Harm Less photo series also showcases plant-based grenades and bullets. According to her about page, Rentsch's "weltanschauung [world view] is to find the beauty in everything." She certainly managed to achieve that even when dealing with such ugly objects as weapons.
