A Man Drilled Full of Holes and Crucified with Nails, 2012 #5

Series of shots inspired by the work of Cuban-American photographer Abelardo Morell. Official website here: www.abelardomorell.net/about/about_01.html --- This particular shot was inspired by Morell's original shot 'English Dictionary with Hole, 2001' here: www.abelardomorell.net/photography/books_01/books_04.html (P.S. As a lover of literature, I would not normally condone the mistreatment of books, but this one, by an author whose previous works I love very much, was a great disappointment to me, so I think it deserves to be nailed to death...! ;-)

    I really like this picture! It reminds me also the main scene of the film "Centochiodi" by Ermanno Olmi, an italian director (I'm not sure it's easy to find it in English...)

    @framarzi I just found the scene you mentioned: m.youtube.com/watch?v=LIDEpTTuIt4&desktop_uri=/watch?v=… It's a lot more powerful - and poetic - than my humble photo, hee hee! Thanks for sharing!!
