pacifier and barbed wireI made this photo in the German Alps in March. This image reminds me some Trevor Brown‘s works. Look at, for example, the studded latex pacifier (see this article).

Usually (like many subjects of Trevor’s art), pacifiers and barbed wire “do not mix”. The “public opinion” would immediately associate such a mix with violence, cruelty or even paedophilia, etc.

But, as you an see, nothing can be more innocent that the story behind the photo. A baby lost his or her pacifier. And a kind human found it and put it in the most visible place. The barbed wire guards either the private property or a piece of forest without foot paths.
