Bullet To The Dome…
Death By Billboard!
Killer New Photo Series By Jon Burgerman

When you walk through a subway in NYC, all sort of things run through you mind, both conscious and unconscious. Billboards are everywhere, with messages shaping how you navigate this urban weirdo landscape. The new art project by Jon Burgerman entitled Headshot shows how violent and threatening many of these ads are…Read what Jon has to say below and check out how these billboards will be the death of him!

Jon describes the work as “interventions staged in public” and each image features a violent advertisement found in the New York subway. I’m particularly impressed by how simple and effective these images are at highlighting the violence that exists in ads. Most of us pass these types of images everyday and yet we never stop to notice just how violent they can be.
